This song is part of a double concept album that follows the character Sirius Amory as he inhabits the souls of being who have passed on. When he enters the soul of Vic the Butcher, he occupies the spirit of a madman with no regard for life. "Vic the Butcher was, in his human life, a terrible person," guitarist Travis Stever
explained. "He burned a bunch of people in an apartment building. He was evicting people, but they couldn't get out - just a really evil person. Started a fire to get the insurance money and did evil things. He works for evil people. But he was one of those people that once they went to this afterlife, they were unsettled and stuck there."
