The lyrics of this song were inspired by an advertisement for gold jewelry that I saw in India featuring a young boy and girl dressed to the nines, specifically, in garb that a bride and groom would wear to their wedding. Essentially, the advertisement featured child marriage. I started writing the song feeling outrage about the practice and the fact that this billboard so blatantly promoted this horrible practice in India. As I continued to refine the lyrics, the song turned into a song about defying what is expected of you and using your free will to create your own destiny.
