Songfacts®:

  • This continues the story that Mike Hranica began on 8:18 of the widow Anna. The DWP frontman explained to TeamRock:

    "On 8:18, the song Home For Grave spoke of a relationship that failed because the man dies and his wife never amounts to anything. It suggests how unfair life can be. This felt like the right time to continue the story when Anna finds out that Ian died."
