Reinventing Your Exit

Album: They're Only Chasing Safety (2004)
  • Underoath lead singer Spencer Chamberlain wrote the lyrics to this song with their drummer Aaron Gillespie, who told us: "That song is about when somebody puts you between a rock and a hard place. Like all your grace has run out, all your love for a person has run out, they've just stepped on you and stepped on you and stepped on you, and you're really just stuck and you don't really know what's next. You're like, well, here I am, I'm stuck up against the wall and there's nothing I can do."
