The songs for AFI's ninth studio album, Burials
, were written during a dark time in vocalist Davey Havok's life and his personal pain infiltrated much of the lyrical content. On this rip roaring cut he croons:
"The blackness drips down from both my hands
The gold in my palm was mistaken for sand
Can you feel it?"
Davey told Radio.com
that the writing of this album was therapeutic. "There was a catharsis in the writing process and there was strangely distance from what I was experiencing," he said. "Despite there being focus on that chaos within the content of what I was creating, it allowed for an escape, which was a strange dichotomy. But it was there and so that was very, very helpful in a way."
