  • This song with apocalyptic end-of-all-things lyrical content was the first single from Welsh rock band Lostprophets' fourth studio album, The Betrayed. The song was premiered in the UK on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show on August 19, 2009.
  • CMU asked guitarist Lee Gaze what inspired The Betrayed. He replied: "It was wholly inspired by our personal experiences; everything we have learnt in the last ten years is in the new album, The Betrayed. This is the first time that we totally self-worked the album, used my own guitars, my own pedals - everything. This album is purely us, through and through."
  • Frontman Ian Watkins told The Daily Mirror that much of The Betrayed was inspired by a distaste for the modern world. "It's upsetting to watch what's happening with the dumbing down of society in general," he said. "People just spend their lives watching other people live their lives."
