Album: The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell (2013)

  • Lyrics
  • This fast-paced, hard-driving track finds FFDP frontman Ivan Moody unleashing his fury. The vocalist recalled: "When I started writing the lyrics I was so fed up. We were about halfway through the album and we had whole bunches of stuff still to do and the stress level just got me and this was just one of those lashings where you rip open your chest and let the monster come out."
  • A video was posted to YouTube showing nine-year-old Olivia Douglas being encouraged to swear whilst Ivan Moody performs the song on stage. A number of sources were quoted as being disgusted by the clip, which shows Moody hugging the little girl while trying to make her chant "Burn motherf---er burn." Olivia appears to be uncomfortable and does not join in, looking towards her father for reassurance.
