  • Dee Snider describes this as an "anti-bullying song." In a track-by-track interview for Songfacts, he said: "This one about the lack of empathy bullies have for their victims and, oddly, the empathy victims have for their bullies. It's a conundrum to me how so many suicide letters mention forgiving their aggressor. I should respect these tortured souls last wishes... but it ain't easy."
  • Arch Enemy frontwoman Alissa Gluz-White sings on this with Snider. She's one of several metal mavens who contributed to the For The Love Of Metal album, which was produced by Jamey Jasta of Hatebreed. Snider likens this track to a modern version of the Ozzy Osbourne/Lita Ford duet "Close My Eyes Forever."

    Gluz-White is usually a growler, but she sang this one more traditionally. "Alissa's vocal on this song is positively magical," said Snider. "So different from the style she usually sings but perfect for the tone of this song."
