“The track narrates frustrations the user has with fabricated realities and the dystopian tendencies that the digital world can exhibit.” explains the band. “The music is intentionally dynamic to compliment the changing emotions behind these ideas.

We are ultimately responsible for who we allow ourselves to be after all!”
