The opening track of Crazy Eyes
starts with a brooding synth before a cathartic scream, then we hear Richard Patrick
singing, "I've got nothing but rage to kill the pain."
The Filter frontman considers this to be the heaviest song that he's ever written. "We've seen people in the US be as cruel as they possibly can be in the last few years," Patrick said. "What is this phenomenon? I'd never intentionally go out and hurt someone. I can't understand that mentality. My art is the only way I can communicate. We know what insanity looks like and what it is, but what does it sound like? 'Mother E' is what I think it sounds like."
