Empty Space

Album: Stanley Climbfall (2002)

Songfacts®:

  • Lead singer Jason Wade: "This is about the good and the bad, the struggle between beauty and darkness and how they're intertwined. What keeps relationships together is often what drives them apart. I've managed to find a niche of writing where I can take something from my own perspective and give it to a broad audience, where they can get something completely different from it than I do. That's the beauty of music it's a universal language, something people can relate to their own lives." >>
