"Inside Of Me" is a song which Chester says is "pretty straightforward" as there is no question as to what the song is about.
Many songs on Out Of Ashes deal with Chester's relationship with his second wife, Talinda Ann Bentley. He says that "Inside Of Me" also, in a way, relates to the theme, "even ‘Inside of Me’ is me needing to be with her when I was out there losing my fucking mind and she was 600 miles away."
Ryan Shuck says this is his favorite Dead By Sunrise song.

"Inside Of Me" was debuted at the first full Dead By Sunrise show, with the song being played after "My Suffering" and featuring an extended outro. At the next show in Hamburg, "Inside Of Me" was given a new intro. When the band played at KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas, "Inside Of Me" was moved up in the set to after "Let Down". Once the band started their 2010 Asian tour, "Inside Of Me" was moved up to the second spot in the set, after "Fire", where it remained throughout the Asian and European tours.
Ryan has said "Inside Of Me" was the song he looked forward to performing live every night when Dead by Sunrise first went on tour. "It was raw emotional power. I felt like when the song began I wasn’t playing – I was holding on for dear life and Chester was taking the wheel. We were off and I couldn’t stop us, and I could barely hold on. It was like running as fast as you can to catch a car driving away with all of your emotions, but knowing that your best friends were running with you. It was insane. And in my opinion should have been the first single off the album."
