Depraved

Album: Dark Is The Way: Light Is A Place (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • Frontman Stephen Christian explained this song's lyrical content to Billboard magazine: "I'm so intrigued by conspiracy theories. I'm not a believer in them but I read them methodically because I think they're this cusp of reality that I can't grasp, that I can't relate to, and so it was kind of like the lyrics of the song were about conspiracy theorists and those who buy into Obama as the anti-christ. [It feels like those people] are slaves to this alternate thinking, and it's bound to destroy them. It's just bound to negate anything they've ever said as truth, and so that's what the song's about."
