Leaving

Album: Life By Design? (2013)
  • This song finds Dan Chandler singing about a soldier returning home and facing the battles after war. Guitarist Dan Donegan explained to Loudwire: "Coming home and adapting to a normal life isn't always that easy for some. Post-traumatic stress disorder, substance-abuse, depression and suicide — these are big issues that need to be addressed and acknowledged."
