  • This track features guest vocals from Oli Sykes of Bring Me The Horizon, and is about the dark periods You Me At Six have been through. Vocalist and lyricist Josh Franceschi explained to Kerrang! magazine: "This is me saying to the other four, 'You're not always as great as you think you are. Nor am I.' Musically, this is us at our heaviest and angriest, and Oli Sykes has a unique voice for that."
