  • Lyrics
  • Funeral for a Friend vocalist Matt Davies-Kreye (from Kerrang! September 13, 2008): "The romantic idea and notion of love and understanding being dirtied by the irresponsible use of sexual control and empowerment for personal gain. Started from an idea that Darran [Smith, guitar] had then we all got our greasy fingers on it and shaped it into this tune. I really love the two guitars firing off at each other in the mid-section."
