Queensrÿche guitarist Chris DeGarmo told RIP
magazine in October 1991: "That was our delving into vampirism: 'By day we'll live in a dream / Walk with me, and we'll walk in the shadows.' It's talking about joining the dark side. This song is also about infatuation. It's speaking to a woman: 'You're through with me, I'm not through with you / We've had what others might call love / You can't stay away, you need me like I need you / When the fire starts, the pain's too much for your mind.' We were all reading the Vampire Chronicles
around that time. Our music has always had a sort of dark flavor to it. Even when we write a love song, it's usually obsessive in nature."
