  • Lyrics
  • Matt Davies-Kreye (vocals) explained the meaning of this track to Kerrang! magazine September 13, 2008: "I think you can interpret the words of this song in many ways. On one hand, it is a song about creative independence, and on the other it's a song about not being fed information that media hands to us to devour every day. It's about making up your own mind and seeing the real truths, not the ones told to us via a corporate interference."
