  • Lower Than Atlantis singer Mike Duce wrote this about his old job as a laborer for a bricklayer. He told Rock Sound: "I'd been doing this on and off since the age of 16 (before the band) and music was the only thing that kept me going during an occupation I hated. I'm trying to convey a kind of 'Hey man, it's OK. We all go through some sh---y experiences at work' kind of message in the lyrics."
