In our interview with Beware of Darkness lead singer Kyle Nicolaides
, he explained that this song was inspired by a poem called The Flea
by John Donne. The poem examines the relationship between a flea and the person it bites - how they become intermingled by blood. There's a lot of dark imagery The Flea
that translates to Nicolaides lyric, especially the line: "Draw some blood, I'm not going hungry tonight."
Nicolaides studied the poem in English class before he wrote the song.
