Album: Life Starts Now (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • This track begins with schoolyard taunts and cheers and calls of "get him" and "bust his hand." Frontman Adam Gontier explained the inspiration for this anti-bullying song on Noisecreep: "Over the last little while, I've watched my little brother, who is 11 years old, go through school," he said. "I've been pretty close with him, and I've been able to watch how kids are with each other, so it was an idea that was on my mind. Growing up, you see how kids that get pushed around and get bullied how it affects them later on in life, so I wanted to write about it so we sat down as a band and wrote the lyrics for that."
