The song is very personal to Leigh Kakaty. "'Torn To Pieces' is a song that's very close to me," he told The Pulse of Radio
. "You know, after losing my father on [second album] War Of Angels
, it was a song that I had written for myself for personal reasons. And the band kind of stepped in and said, 'Look, if this song can help others, you know, I really think you should stop being selfish and, you know, let others heal from it.' You know, I took that to heart — you know, when the guys talk, they're usually right."
