Songfacts®:

  • This is one of two new songs recorded for Thousand Foot Crutch's greatest hits album, Made In Canada: The 1998-2010 Collection (the other one is "Complicate You"). Thousand Foot Krutch frontman, Trevor McNevan, explained the song's meaning: "It is about those times in our lives when we feel like a small ship in a big sea, surrounded by crashing waves and looking for solid ground,"he said. "It felt like a unique way to say, 'God, I need you so bad right now, I feel like I'm sinking!' It's an S.O.S."
