Album: Memory And Humanity (2008)
  • Vocalist Matt Davies-Kreye explained this track to Kerrang! magazine September 13, 2008: "When a topic strikes me, I can write so many lyrics and words on the subject. I don't remember what it was that I saw on the television, but whatever it was, it sparked my determination to write a song about the pain and suffering of child abuse and the ways we as a society refuse to fully acknowledge those who truly need to confide in someone so that they can begin to overcome their fears and difficult lives. I was adamant that I would present these words as a call for understanding, and for those ears that are closed by ignorance to be opened with understanding and a determination to not let these acts of abuse continue."
