Songfacts®:

  • Oli Sykes' darkly flippant lyrics on this song are about closed-minded individuals who only accept what they've been brought up on, and refuse to open their ears to an alternative. He explained to Kerrang: "I never say never - I believe in nothing, but I'm open to anything. The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper, but will never discover them if they are to scared to oppose what we think is the fact."
