Guitarist/vocalist Michael Poulsen
told The Pulse of Radio
the song was very personal to him. "I lost my father four, five years ago and I believe that every man in this universe, you know, they have their heroes and most of us are looking at our dad as a big hero," he explained. "And so, of course, I'm singing about a little boy who lost his father, and then at the same time he loses his belief in his superheroes."
