In Their Words: “’On the Way Down’ is song about taking account of what is important to you. It’s a song born out of watching people cling, white-knuckled, to the very things that are pulling them down. Some people grab onto the anchor to keep themselves from drowning. Watching that sort of slow motion suicide is incredibly painful, when it is someone you care about. You just want to shake them. That’s what this song is — an attempt to grab someone by the collar and pry their fingers from the anchor.” — Rod Picott
