Everyone Dies
by Cold

Songfacts®:

  • This is a depressing song about our own mortality. When lead singer Scooter Ward thinks he is about to pass away, he can finally see God as he suffocates (as we all do when we die).
  • Ward makes reference to aliens in this song:

    They come down from outer space
    To blow up all the human race


    He's not a Tom DeLonge-level evangelist, but Ward does think the truth is out there.
