This song serves as Bury Tomorrow's state-of-the-world address. Vocalist Daniel Winter-Bates told Kerrang: "'The Age' is quite dark, especially considering it's the most commercial-sounding song on the album. I've touched on it a few times on previous albums. It's a real statement that we're almost at the point of no return. We're almost at the stage where are the world's needs to burn and be rebuilt. Everybody is so siloed in their tiny, little boxes. Just look at their politicians that are ruining our world at the moment."
"These are single individuals that have agendas, and we are letting them decide them future of the planet that we all have a responsibility for," he added. "It shouldn't just be one person with an agenda for money, and agenda for power, or an agenda for nuclear warfare. It's total madness."
