Until The Day

Album: Incarnate (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • This is a road song. Vocalist Jesse Leach told TeamRock: "When I first heard it I thought it sounded super '80s, and because of that I actually reference 'Faithfully' by Journey, Iron Maiden's 'Wasted Years,' and Bob Seger's 'On the Road Again' in the lyrics. All three of those songs came to mind when I first heard it, so I made it a song about the road. It's basically about being a touring musician and looking back on life and deciding that you're going to be a different person to the one you used to be."
