This song tackles Randy Blythe
's experience at the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota. The Lamb Of God frontman joined the native peoples there to protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline being built near to their water supply on unceded treaty land.
Said Blythe: "I went to Standing Rock because I had heard reports of violence committed on the peaceful protesters there by both state law enforcement and private security contractors, and this violence was not reported in mainstream media for the most part. I went to bring supplies and support these people, who were trying to protect their water, and thereby protect everyone, as everything in the natural world is protected. I was there a week, made some great friends, and learned a lot. It was a very profound experience in my life, and I knew one day I would write a song about it."
