Songfacts®:

  • Beware of Darkness is the Los Angeles-based trio of lead singer Kyle Nicolaides, bass player Daniel Curcio and drummer Tony Cupito. Nicolaides wrote this song's lyric, which he told us is about "losing your favorite person on the planet." When we pressed him for details, he declined: "That's all I can say about it."

    Nicolaides was clearly going through a rough patch and working out his emotion in the song, where he sings: "If I can't have you in this life then I don't want this life at all."
  • Nicolaides wrote this song with John 5, a guitarist who has played in Marilyn Manson's band and with Rob Zombie.
  • Kyle Nicolaides keeps journals, which is where a lot of his song ideas come from. A key line in this song, "When you leave this life, the world will be a darker place," is something he wrote down in a journal months before he wrote this track. He discovered it when he went back to look at the journal, and decided to incorporate it into this song.
