Saints & Sinners

Album: Temper Temper (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Vocalist Matt Tuck told Artist Direct that with this track, the band "tried to spice things up." He explained: "We didn't want to stick to our old formulas and ways of writing. It's something I've never done before. It's a bit more tongue-in-cheek, but the meaning is serious. There are good people and bad people in the world. Life is what you make of it, but we're all ultimately going to the same place at the end of the day. It's about making the most of life but appreciating that it can be a f--ked up place."
