This song came from a prayer that TobyMac always says as he walks around the studio before writing songs. He told NewReleaseToday
: "Most of my writing sessions I stay consistent to this prayer, saying 'God, hollow me of anything that would get in Your way of writing a song. Hollow me of any pride, insecurity and doubt. Make me hollow enough that You can breathe something through me that would turn people's eyes to You. Make me a hollow enough vessel that You can breathe something that is more poetic than I could ever write, more melodic than I could ever sing, more lyrical than I could every rap. Breathe something that is literally beyond me.'"
"Out of that prayer one day before writing this song with my friend David Garcia, we said 'maybe that's the song,' that very prayer I had been praying."
