  • Lyrics
  • This song follows on from "Planets" as M. Shadows sings about getting cast into space with your loved one to die after the planets collide. Guitarist Synyster Gates commented to MusicRadar.com: "It's a cool way to end the record – not a typical ballad, but it's not soft or sugary, either. The song takes you to an emotional place, especially if you pay attention to the lyrics, which are some of the best Matt has ever written."

    He added; "The song is about coming to the realization that you've lost the battle, but at least you're with that one special person who matters. It's something of an apocalyptic love story, which is pretty unique for us."

  • Fandi from Medan, IndonesiaThis song is a song that I really love about avenged sevenfold.
    It can make me cry also.
  • Connor from British ColumbiaThis song is clearly about mushroom clouds. It's about end of days, depopulation and ww3. Sorry, that's what it's about.
  • Diane Jackson from UkIt is so strange but just after we lost our two dogs, (they were pts together at the same time due to ill health), this song just kept coming on my ipod repeatedly even though there are over 2000 songs on there. So much so that I got the lyrics, from this website as I was sure someone, somewhere was trying to tell me something through this song. I feel sure that it was a message from my two friends that they were together and it had had to be that way and they were still together in the next life. An amazing song but needless to say, it always makes me cry.
  • Crystal from Peru IndianaI start bawling when I hear this song not because its sad really but because its a message of hope promise and love that we will get to see our loved ones soon that they are not dead or gone really we are just temporarily separated from them
    love you mike and chris camp and smitty-crystal McIntosh
