  • Gray from Aurora , CoThis is a very good song. It tells somethings that many people growing up in are country face problems with. Many including Alcohol, and other popular drugs.
  • Sarah from Niagara FallsActually this is an old song that Aaron Lewis wrote while he was still in high school around grade ten. It ended up on the album because one day the lyrics just popped back into his head, and he felt the need to track it down, it ended up on the album because it fits with it as a whole.
