Symptom of Terminal Illness

Album: Dissociation (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • Greg Puciato's lyrics on this metal ballad reference his own experience with panic attacks and panic disorder. He told TeamRock:

    "It's the most literal and non-metaphoric or abstract thing I've ever written. It's already incredibly bizarre to have the song exist in the first place, so to go even deeper and talk about it would mean that I have to talk about my personal life and that's just not something I'm willing to do."
