Lyrical themes

The song appears to be commenting on moral decay in society; "Like those gasping for their last breath. We cannot hide, there's nothing left" "This world was never worthy, but how can I call it 'unfaithful'? Every promise was fulfilled as decay crawled from its throat." On the album version of the song, both the clean and the screamed vocals in the chorus are sung by vocalist Tim Lambesis, but in the live video shown on Fuel TV's "The Daily Habit", drummer Jordan Mancino sings the clean lyrics. In most live shows now, bassist Josh Gilbert sings the clean part.
