Misery

Album: Single release only (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • This high-energy track was released as an "extension" of Dark Matter, keeping the momentum going until Word Alive's next studio album. Singer Telle Smith explained the background to this track:

    "It's a extremely personable song that took influence from not just many of our fans stories over the years, but our own experiences in past relationships. Toxic people unfortunately have a way of disguising themselves in the beginning, only to show their true colors down the line. There's hope in this tormented story though and we hope you find yours."
