Lead singer Mark Hall said the idea for this song came when he was driving home with his family one night. Following some worship time Hall wondered “Who am I to think I can just call up to God whenever I want, from the middle of nowhere, and expect Him to hear me?” Hall says “immediately I started thinking I’m a new creation, I’m more than a conqueror… I’m [also] grass, that is rises up and is gone in a day”
