Into the Nothing

Album: Dear Agony (2009)


  • Frontman Ben Burnley told Artist Direct the story behind the song: "It's a little reflective of what's going on in the country right now, and it's a little reflective of the camaraderie of our armed forces. You could apply it to that, or you could apply it to a relationship. Leaving things vague is actually harder than people think, and that's something that sobriety has helped with too. It's really easy to write about a subject because you have that subject to go off of. I really take great efforts so that it's vague enough to mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people. I'm the sole lyric writer in the band so every album is a reflection of what I'm going through at the time or what I was thinking."
