Songfacts®:

  • This is a track from the American hard rock band Rev Theory's third studio album, Justice. Vocalist Rich Luzzi explained the song's meaning to Artist Direct: "Everybody has a good and a bad side. If you read into it, the chorus says, 'Don't let the sun go down.' When the sun goes down, that's when the party begins and the demons come out. You're trying to be as good as you possibly can but the inevitable could happen. It's innately there. Sometimes people have rubber arms. They don't have the strong will necessary to not submit to those demons. There's always that person who's going to twist the arm. Rarely, do you find the person who's going to say, 'Hey bud, you shouldn't do this.' Most of the time, it's going to be, 'Don't worry about it! Come on; let's go!' Misery loves company [Laughs]."
