  • Guitarist Anthony Armstrong explained to Artist Direct that this brooding cut finds vocalist Michael Barnes singing, "about the damage we do as human beings." He added: "Character is defined by how we repair the damage. If you use the word 'damage' in a song, it's going to be heavy. It's the heaviest one yet in all the right ways."
