John Connolly: “It wasn’t the first song we did for the record, but it was the first one that we completed vocally. For that reason, it’s probably one of LJ’s favorites on the album.
“There are some ‘demo moments’ on it, but we did what Sevendust always does – you bring the frame of a house in, and we just completely finish everything. It was a lot of fun, a little different, and obviously it’s very different from songs like Till Death or Murder Bar. It has a lot more of the melodic element. Compared to some things, it’s very radio.
“Lyrically, I think it’s hopeful. The whole album has a dark take to it – we’re looking at the harshness of where we are in the world. But as bad as things can seem, we’re trying to say that there is some light out there. There is hope, even though we love to dwell on the negativity. [Laughs]
“There’s not a person in this band who doesn’t like to write about something that’s got ‘em pissed off, but we’re not Slayer. This is not a God Hates Us All kind of a record. Our attitude is, ‘God’s pissed, but we can fix it.’”
