The No More Hell To Pay
record finds Michael Sweet
musing on the idea of when this is all over, what are we going to leave behind? He explained to Decibel:
: "It's an album that asks, Are you ready — really ready — to die? What are you doing to make the world a better place? Is your legacy three cars, a couple houses, and money in the bank? If so, to me that is not a legacy. We live life, get caught up in it and sometimes consumed by it, but then when we're on our deathbed too many of us are left saying, 'I should have done more.'"
"Our legacies are more about how we have touched people, and changed the lives and hearts of those around us," Sweet continued. "That's what people are going to talk about when you're gone, not your money. That's what we're focused on. And one of the messages of this album is that it is never too late to start living your life that way."
