Same Disease
by Red

Album: Release The Panic (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This song finds vocalist Michael Barnes singing about how all humans are attracted to what destroys us. Guitarist Anthony Armstrong told Artist Direct: "This track is about leveling the field. Regardless if we are believers in a higher power or not, the bottom line is that we are all infected with falling short as human beings."

    He added: "Much like 'Die For You', this track stared off with a programmed beat that just felt great and the song was literally birthed from that."
