Burn the Bridge

Songfacts®:

  • Vocalist Chad Gray discussed this track with Artist Direct: "That song reminds me of old Mudvayne - especially the verses. Writing it, I hated that f--king song. I was like, "What the f--k are you doing?" I don't really start getting in tune with a track until I'm sitting down getting ready to write lyrics. I thought, 'How the f--k am I going to write to this?' [Laughs] We get through it though. We just keep working and working."
