This Present State of Grace

Album: Speed Of Darkness (2011)
  • Vocalist Dave King explained this song to Alternative Press magazine: "That's another one of those [songs about] keeping your head above water, above all the bulls--t we have to deal with in life, doing it with a swagger and a sense of humor. Always put out a positive energy. Rise above things that try to drag you down. You have to make peace, but you have to make peace with yourself."
