Silent Voices Kill

Album: Attics to Eden (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • Vocalist Nathan Leone explained this song to Kerrang! magazine April 4, 2009: "This is about the voices that people have in their head that talk to them, especially when you're trying to sleep. You think that it's you talking, but it's not. I think it's the 'ego,' and the 'egoic' mind is the devil and needs to be obliterated. The goal is to observe those voices, realize that it isn't you and ultimately destroy them before they destroy you."
