Why'd You Change Your Mind

Album: Everyday Demons (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • Frontman Cormac Neeson (from Kerrang! February 21, 2009): "The lyrics are based loosely on a friend of mine that committed suicide back in my school days. In the chorus of the song I'm just trying to understand what goes through a person's mind and why they should take their own life. The night we finished recording it, we were listening back to the bare bones rough mix drinking tequilas and saying that this was a really powerful f—king song."
