Genevieve explains in an interview with AOL that the song
… is about breaking down the wall of someone’s expectations to reveal your true self, only to be ostracized and told to feel or be different so that you fit in, make friends [and] become successful.
You can read the full interview at AOL Music. The band also recently filmed an acoustic version of the song for FILTER , which takes place at Chicago’s Ferris Wheel at Navy Pier. They are currently on their headlining June tour which ends this Sunday at Illinois’ Ravinia Festival along with Daryl Hall and John Oates.
