Cloud Factory

Album: Pariah's Child (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • This song was made available as a single ahead of the release of Sonata Arctica's Pariah's Child album. Commented vocalist/keyboardist Tony Kakko: "It has some kind of an earworm factor. It's not a bad thing to have in a single. A story about how dad already sees his young son going to work in the same factory he still goes and where his dad and dad's dad went before him, and how that pleasantly vicious circle never ends."
