Enemies

Album: The North Corridor (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • At the time vocalist Pete Loeffler was writing this song, the band were experiencing problems with some online trolls. His frustration fed into the lyrics where he vents about Wikipedia. Loeffler explained to Loudwire: "The whole Wikipedia thing is set up like s--t, if you ask me. That song, I talk about it a lot. The sound changed a little bit."

    "There was one [time] where I found some things out about [Wikipedia] and how you can't control your own Wikipedia page and it angered me intensely," he continued. "There's just so many misquotes and lies online and it's a bummer, I'll just say that. When I found out some things about Wikipedia it was a hard day, so it came out in that song 'Enemies,' and once people read along with the lyrics I'm sure they will get that and get that anger in my voice."
