This mostly instrumental song finds August Burns Red blending bongos, cello, Chinese harp, marimba, trumpet and violin into their musical arsenal. Guitarist and principal songwriter JB Brubaker told The Alternative Press: "Every once and a while, we like to write songs that are completely off the wall. "Creative Captivity" is an example of this. I have a feeling this will be either a 'love it or hate it' track for a lot of people."
The song turns a critical eye to the Metalcore genre, as August Burns Red attempt to prove by example that bands can still find exciting new ways to expand the genre. Brubaker explained to Alternative Press: "It is about how boring our genre has become and how we all need to try hard to break out of the slump that is currently plaguing Metalcore."
Brubaker explained the meaning behind the album title: "Rescue & Restore is about challenging other bands and ourselves, as well as fans of this music, to want more than whatever happens to be the current buzz," he said.
"We've done our best with each new album to try to push our sound in new directions and we'd like to see our peers do the same."
"People need to realize that there's not much of a difference between a metalcore song that has a couple breakdowns with a repeating chorus and the latest Lady Gaga song. This genre used to be better than that. It can still be better than that."
"Won't Get Fooled Again" by The Who is about a revolution, but it doesn't have a happy ending, since in the end the new regime becomes just like the old one. Pete Townshend thought that whoever was in power was destined to become corrupt.
