Album: All Hope Is Gone (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • Lead singer Corey Taylor (from Kerrang! July 19, 2008): "It's a dressing down of the world as we know it. Not just about America, it kinda goes up against any civilization that takes themselves too seriously and where the 'leaders' are so pretentious that they think they are deemed to speak for the people. It all comes down to the fact that we have to save ourselves."
