Secrets' Wade Walters has opened up about the band’s breakthrough album, They’re Only Chasing Safety, and more specifically, their song “It’s Dangerous Business Walking Out Your Front Door.” “Growing up, I was raised very sheltered and was only allowed to listen to Christian music,” he wrote in a statement on the band’s Facebook page. “When I was 13, I bought my first Underoath album from a Christian bookstore and quickly discovered a song called “It's Dangerous Business Walking Out Your Front Door.” At first glance I thought that it was a funny name for a song and then I began to think about what it really meant. My mom tried so hard to shelter me away from everything bad in the world but no matter how hard she tried I would always have to walk out that front door.”
