Album: Take to the Skies (2007)


  • Singer Ron Reynolds told Crossfire that this track was inspired by both the Sonic the Hedgehog level and the 1980s David Bowie film of the same name: "The Sega Mega drive has always been my favorite games console, and Sonic one of my favorite games, and that level is just sweet, how f--king panicky you get when he starts gasping for air and the countdown starts! Genius. And yes of course the movie is a complete classic, Bowie's awesome."
