The Dark Hills

Album: Losing All (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • Day of Fire vocalist Josh Brown explained this track to Artist Direct: "It's about being at the bottom, and when all hope is gone, hope finds you. We desire to show that light at the end of the tunnel on all of our records. We all have faith. We're believers. Growing up, music was my religion. I listened to Alice in Chains, Nirvana and all of those bands. I identified with those bands because they sang about what I was going through, but there was never any hope there. If one of those guys, after they OD'ed, would've come back and said, 'Guess what? I found another way… there's hope. There's light at the end of the tunnel.' I would've followed that light. That's what we try to show with our music—just like a Johnny Cash record. There are always songs about murder, cocaine and Jesus. For me, a great record is going to have all of those elements because this is the real world. We all go through things and we all need hope."
