Songfacts®:

  • This is the title track of the Welsh Post-Hardcore band Funeral for a Friend's sixth album. Vocalist Matt Davies explained the meaning of the album title: "Five people on a stage, a conduit for the message and the music, delivering that to people who want to listen in, be a part of whatever it is that we're doing and being involved," he said. "It's purely about delivering the message. After 10 years of being a band, we see how much what we've done has affected people who care about our stuff. Whether it's lyrics or whatever, these songs transcend us and become something more to a lot more people. It sounds lofty I know but that's how it feels to us when we meet the folks who dig our band and who treat these songs with so much love and respect. It blows our minds constantly."
  • Bassist Richard Boucher told Alternative Press magazine that this "is probably one of the heaviest tracks we've ever written." He added: "It's a speeding roller coaster of aggression. It has a heavy hardcore influence. This is one for the live set, for sure."
