Themes[edit]

According to Disturbed's vocalist David Draiman, the song "signifies strength, unity, conviction, power, and the exhilaration that you feel when you get to see that at one of our shows. It's one of my favorite moments, and people know that I have an affinity for asking people to put their fists in the air, and it's just, it's exhilaration to be able to see ten thousand raised fists or more."[1]
