Lost In The Grey

Album: Shadows Inside (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • Here, Miss May I vocalist Levi Benton talks about the need to change in order to get away from our "grey" existence. The song was released as the lead single from Shadows Inside. Benton told Loudwire:

    "This is a great first track to release to the mass as it represents the effort it takes to get out of the complacent and stale life people live. The song is about finding that hope and drive to push you to a new and better life."
  • The song's music video was directed by Ramon Boutviseth, who has previously worked with P.O.D. ("Murdered Love") and Trivium ("Strife") among others. Benton said:

    "The lion has always represented hope and ambition and now with this video it's physical and represented as a mask that one needs to show them there is a better life for everyone, if you push for it."
