  • Lyrics
  • Bassist Liam Wilson told The Associated Press about this track: "This has to be one of the most relentless songs we've ever written. It's a tour-de-force of down-picking fury - the way our forearms tingle after we play this one tells us it's working! If I'm remembering correctly, this was the third song we wrote and we wrote it quickly. It's seemingly one of the simplest in structure, yet arguably the most difficult and demanding to play. It's full of token Dillinger tricks and treats, twists and turns, with lyrics loosely stabbing at the musician/fan relationship in an age of uncontrolled transparency, unregulated thievery, and debatable integrity surrounding the music industry."
