Beth Ditto è dichiaratamente lesbica ed è nota per il suo supporto ai movimenti LGBT e femminista.
Scrisse questa canzone come reazione all’introduzione nella Carta costituzionale americana del cosiddetto “Federal Marriage Amendment”, con cui l’amministrazione Bush mirava a rendere fuorilegge i matrimoni omosessuali:

“Nobody in the States was that surprised or shocked by what Bush did, but it made everyone I know feel helpless and cheated. I wrote the chorus to try and encourage people not to give up. It’s a scary time for civil rights, but I really believe the only way to survive is to stick together and keep fighting.”



“Nessuno negli States si è stupito di quello che Bush ha fatto, ma comunque ognuno di noi è rimasto sconfortato e ingannato. Ho scritto il coro per cercare di incoraggiare le persone a non mollare. È un momento spaventoso per i diritti civili, ma credo davvero che l'unico modo per sopravvivere sia quello di stare insieme e continuare a lottare.” (Beth Ditto, 2006)
Your backs against the wall
There's no one home to call
you're forgetting who you are
you can't stop crying
It's part not giving in
and part trusting your friends
you'll do it all again
and i'm not lying

Oh, oh, oh
standing in the way of control
yeah live your lives
by the only way that you know, know.

I'm doing this for you
because it's easier to lose.
and it's time to face the truth
when you think you're dying
It's part not giving in
and part trusting your friends
you'll do it all again
but you don't stop trying.

Oh, oh, oh
standing in the way of control
yeah live your lives
by the only way that you know, know.

Standing in the way of control
we live our lives
because we're standing in the way of control
we either live our lives
because we're standing in the way of control
we live our lives
because we're standing in the way of control
we either live our lives, lives, lives.

Your backs against the wall
There's no one home to call
you're forgetting who you are
you can't stop crying
It's part not giving in
and part trusting your friends
you'll do it all again
but you don't stop trying

Oh, oh, oh
standing in the way of control
yeah live your lives
by the only way that you know, know.
