The song from the band's latest full-length album American Candy puts a powerful emphasis on finding peace with your flaws and feeling comfortable in your own skin and provides comfort for anyone struggling with anything from confidence and weight, gender identity and bullying, to abusive parents -- letting them know they are not alone.
