Break

  • This song was inspired by a drink belonging to a friend of frontman Travis Hawley that got spiked with a hallucinogenic drug during a party. The vocalist told Billboard magazine: "It made me start to realize that not all people are good and that we have to keep our wits with us and our guard up with who we surround ourselves with."
