Hit Me Like A Bomb

Songfacts®:

  • Mac Powell said regarding this edgy rocker about transformation: "That song is about your life drastically being changed, just a totally 180 turned around. In the chorus I say 'And I saw it coming.' It's like you know There's got to be a change or you're going to end up in a bad place. You see it coming and you know There's this anticipation that it's going to happen. It's got to happen, but it's almost like you're fighting it. Then boom! All of a sudden it happens from out of nowhere."
