This booming track finds Amy Lee
singing about death, a subject she has visited on a number of occasions before including "My Immortal
," "Even In Death
" and "Hello
." "I wrote it with the guys. It was real collaborative," Lee explained to MTV News. "That was a hard one for me to write the lyrics for, because I had the chorus — it's very epic and dramatic; 'Counting the days to meet you on the other side' — but then, the verses, again, that element of fun is coming back in, you know, the band, it's grooving. So I'm like, 'How do I sing about death in a way that's sort of bitchy?' Like, it's not really possible ... it's hard to explain. But it's harder than it sounds."
Lee's preoccupation with death can partly be explained by the tragedy of losing her 3-year-old sister Bonnie when she was 6.
