Songfacts®:

  • This is the opening track of Parkway Drive's sixth studio album, Reverence. Vocalist Winston McCall explained to Rock Sound:

    "We wanted to put it first so it would be a real slap in the face. Every line is about the feelings of going through grief. It's about finding some way to blame a horrible event when there is nothing to blame. There's nothing or no-one to place the blame on and you make up things and you curse the sky and you look at yourself and think 'what could I have done to change this?' It's also about when someone disappears from your life in an everyday sense and you start missing little habits. It's purely a documentation of what that is like."
