  • Lyrics
  • Vocalist Matt Tuck penned this song with six-time WWE world champion and Fozzy frontman Chris Jericho. Tuck explained to Artist Direct: "He came up with the main concept. I was struggling a bit to write it. It was one of the last songs we wrote. It reminded me of an old school metal style very much like a Metallica track from Ride the Lightning. It's very heavy and melodic, but ballad-y at the end. I thought, 'Who do I know that grew up in that era and loves that kind of music?' Chris was an obvious choice so I called him up. We've been friends for quite a while. I asked, 'Would you like to help write this track?' He got the ball rolling with the verses. I put on the big anthemic outro. It's a beautiful saying, but it's very sinister. It's a double entendre title."
