Songfacts®:

  • Guitarist Rob Arnold explained to Kerrang! magazine: "This was the third song written for The Infection, and we knew right away that it was going to be the album's lead-off track." He added that this song's, "sludgy-sounding body is surrounded by an epic intro and outro. As an early indicator of what's to come over the next nine tracks, you might get the feeling that you're in for something special."

  • Mike from Denver, Coif you put all the tracks in order, they make sense...

    *the venom inside* is *frozen in time*, but its *coming alive*, it's one of *the secrets of the dead*. *the disappearing sun* means your *impending doom* is coming. *on broken glass* we will *destroy and dominate*...but *try to survive*, *the heart of it all*
