  • Lyrics
  • Multi-instrumentalist Peter Tägtgren told Artist Direct the story of this song. "I think I had this violin melody in my head that I needed to get out," he said. "I started building heavy guitar things around it."

    "You want to have the black, white, and everything in between," Tägtgren continued. "If it goes soft with a violin, then it goes super heavy with a guitar with down-tuning. Then you get something extraordinary in my opinion. For me, music has always been about pulse. You need to have a good pulse and the right BPM shift. That's really how it started with the music."
