J-Dog told Artist Direct: “Technically, when we wrote ‘Hear Me Now,’ it was about what various people in the band were going through at the moment. It could mean something different to everyone because we have so many writers on each song. Everyone wrote his own part and based it on what he was going through in his own life."

As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I wear my crown of thorns and pull the knife out my chest
I keep searching for something that I never seem to find
But maybe I won't because I left it all behind
