  • Lyrics
  • This incendiary track from Papa Roach's 10th album asks a question many are looking to answer in America's hyper-partisan political climate: Who do you trust? Lead singer Jacoby Shaddix called it "a statement of engagement." He explained: "The message of the song is to think for yourself and to trust in yourself, and the imagery of the song matches that. It's the sea of information, all of if slightly out of focus - and you're left floating in trying to decide for yourself."
  • When the Molotov drops
    Tell me who do you trust?

    Molotov cocktails, which are bottles filled with gasoline that are lit on fire to cause explosions, are typically seen in riots. In peaceful times, it's easier to trust media and authority figures, but when the Molotov's start flying, we're on our own.
  • The video, directed by Darren Craig, intersperses scenes of what looks like news reports from the '90s, with exaggeratedly ridiculous anchors and reporters.
