Drive

Album: Limitless (2015)
  • The first verse is a reflection of singer Jenna McDougall's inherently nice nature where she's polite to other people even when they're making her suffer. She explained to Kerrang: "Since leaving high school, it took me a long time to recognize uncomfortable situations and how to call people out. I'm okay with looking like the bad guy if it means that I've stood up for myself. "
  • The second verse finds McDougall reflecting on the music industry. She said: "I've been exposed to people that have wanted me to change things about myself and our band from image to song writing. It was really important for me to learn to say no and have my own vision."
