In Their Words: “I wrote this song a few years ago, actually. My intention was that we’d all have parts on sing on it. I was really wanting to write something that included everyone.  This song is really about judgment. I’m a fairly private person, to a certain extent. It’s hard for me to talk about a lot of things, but I think what’s hardest is talking about God, religion, and my beliefs, in general. This song is about truly having to be open with all of that, saying this is who I am, this is what I believe. But also being ready to be judged for it. I’m still the same person you knew yesterday (or 10 years ago, for that matter). I’ve always been this way. Take it or leave it.” — Kim Garcia
