  • Lyrics
  • Guitarist Ryan Jarman told Gibson.com that this is his favorite song on Ignore The Ignorant. He explained why: "It's the last song we wrote and I think it's an indication of where we may be going in the future. That song is so sprawling and we didn't try to write it, it just came out. I like the idea of not sitting down to write a song and instead having it just kind of come out. I like the music being in control of us, instead of us being in control of the song and that's always been the approach that we've had in this band."
