Don’t tell anybody
Trouble finds me
All the noise of this
Has made me lose my belief
I’m going back to my roots
Another day, another door
Another high, another low
Rock bottom, rock bottom, rock bottom

Maybe there is a whole load of crap and trouble going on in your life, you have hit *rock bottom* your life is hell, many people you love you might have lost, but you are going back to your *roots* and remembering the good that once was.

This song has actually been confirmed that it was about Dan Reynolds' depression. You can hear it if you listen closely. I can't really explain.

For me it's going back to the person I used to be, which was a better person...

In this song Dan Reynolds is saying that he's lost his belief in God because of all the noise of the world. He wants to go back to where he found his belief and overall he wants to believe in God. When I imagine Dan writing this song I picture him by himself crying and thinking about how undisciplined he's been towards God. He's saying that the thing he desires most is to be close to God, but he's having trouble finding this. I know from personal experiences how this feels. You want so badly to be close to God, but no matter how hard you try you can't seem to feel the way about God that you used to. You can see this in other songs that Dan begs for a second chance from God and wants God to hold his hand and take him back to where he believed.

I think this song has different meanings, depending on your mood, but for me it's about a man who has run out of money, 'trouble found he','rock bottom', and now he has to move back to his parents,'roots'.
