According to Blabbermouth.com-

Stone Sour vocalist Corey Taylor said that "Hesitate" is one of the standout tracks on the latest Stone Sour album, "Audio Secrecy", for him. "It's a bittersweet song, " he said. "It's about letting go of something that you want with all your heart that you know is just gonna do nothing but damage to you. And it takes a special kind of heart and a special kind of courage to do that. And not a lot of people have that kind of courage. They would rather sit in a relationship for years and wallow in it because they're afraid of being alone. And this is about having the courage to say, 'You know what, I'm getting away. I'm gonna be on my own, and I'm gonna be OK.' And those first few steps are the worst, but once you get each foot in front of the other, it's a lot easier."
