  • Lead singer Geoff Rickly told fans at a concert before he sang this song that it was about how he and his best friend at the time got into a fistfight and didn't speak for years. His best friend was shot in the head and killed while playing with a gun on vacation and Geoff never got a chance to apologize. He said he always had dreams of his friend running down the stairs of his attic where they used to hang out, hence the name "Steps Ascending." >>
