According to Demmene, the song was written to combat the public inclination to judge those who suffer from addiction. The intention is to let them know that despite general perception they are not the only ones who struggle with the consequences of personal missteps. Demmene has courageously offered his story so as to lead the charge for those who feel trapped by social stigmas. The overall goal of the song is to inspire those who can relate and to show that substance abuse is not a death sentence, but instead a challenge that can be overcome and left in the past.
