Clint Lowery: “When it comes to ballads, we always seem to have certain songs that can stand on their own, things like Angel’s Sons. They’re really cool acoustic, melodic songs, sort of depressing sounding [laughs].
“I had this riff sitting around, something I recorded on my phone, actually. Morgan liked it a lot, so I kept it. We wanted a song where we all sing, sort of our version of Fleetwood Mac. I wanted to build it up from the acoustics, so we did that, put in the programming, and Morgan’s parts were put on last.
“We had a melody, and the ‘got a feeling’ lyric kept coming up, so we decided to make every verse, every line, this thought that you’d have during the day. It’s basically a stream of consciousness about how harsh life can be. Also, there’s a theme about how you’ve made mistakes, but you don’t even know if you have time to make amends because life just goes by so quickly.
“It’s a very emotional song, and it’s one of my favorites because it’s so personal. I think it’s great that everybody sings on it. It’s intense.”
