Songfacts®:

  • This uptempo, unashamedly commercial track is also intensely personal, so much so that lyricist Jon Mikl Thor would not discuss it in any depth, although he did say it was related to "Thunder Road." The metaphors in the song are too obvious to explain here. And too explicit!

    Frank Scoda and Scot Young assisted him with the music. Running to 4 minutes 18 seconds, the fifth track on Beyond The Pain Barrier is published by Vulcan Sky Music/Vulcan Sky Entertainment Group like the rest of the album. >>
