Songfacts®:

  • Vocalist Matt Davies-Kreye told Kerrang! magazine September 13, 2008 the story of this song: "This song is the counterpoint to 'Constant Illuminations,' but whereas that song is an angry attack, this is a more restrained, reflective look on the loss of innocence and how we choose to ignore the important issues and events that go on around us.
    This song came about through a jam session that we had while Kris [Coombes-Roberts, guitar] was travelling down to the writing sessions. I picked up the guitar and started playing the little guitar part, Gareth [Ellis-Davies, bass] started the movement into the chorus section and we put the music down using either Garage Band or Logic and waited for Kris to have a listen. He really liked it and added a complimentary guitar part along with mine and Darran's then Ryan [Richards, drums] added some really cool synth and loops to really liven it up. It's such a haunting song."
