  • Lyrics
  • This is the opening track of American metal band Five Finger Death Punch's second studio album, War is the Answer.
  • This was the last song to be recorded for the album. Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Zoltan Bathory explained to Metal Hammer why this was chosen as the opening track: "You know, we didn't have an awful lot of time in which to make the new record, and this was the last track that Ivan added his vocals to. That's why we originally had it down as a bonus track, because it was being worked on right at the end of our schedule… but when we heard the finished thing, we knew it had to go on the album. Track One!"
    He added: "In a way, it's a bit like 'Ashes' on the first album – 196 bpm, really fast, a heavy aggressive track with a great melodic chorus. It really was the missing piece of the puzzle."
