Glass Castle

Songfacts®:

  • This track - its title conjuring the image of something magnificent yet fragile - was inspired by recent tensions in the band. Frontman Tyler 'Telle' Smith told Kerrang! magazine: "It starts with the lyric ' I am the reason that you're alive,' which is a play on words, obviously, because of our name, and all of us felt that we brought something new to the table that made this what it is."
