“We’re all just prisoners of our own desire, born with a f***ing halo and a sword in our hands.
Just when you fall so deep into your fantasy, you realize you’re never coming back.”
The second release following their freshman album, Pressure (2019), this new song proves once again that using heavy beats and pleading clean vocals to convey deep emotion are very much in the band’s wheelhouse.
The song opens with a spoken word passage. It’s a common, yet powerful tool in the metal world that’s used to great effect. The song then drops into rigid guitar riffs and brutal harsh vocals, giving a grim glimpse into the story we’re about to hear.
After a brief metal onslaught, passionate vocals lull into an entrancing melody. The lyrics tell the story of a seemingly toxic relationship. They describe feeling on fire and questioning one’s own soul, finally in the bridge admitting, “if hell is what I deserve, then I deserve you too.” This song has a relatable theme of deep connection while also feeling like you’re burning alive in your own skin as the relationship eats away at you day after day. The lyrics are very open to interpretation, which is honestly, in my opinion, the sign of a good poet. It doesn’t have to mean just one thing, which is beautiful in that people can relate on different levels.
The first single after their split with Sumerian Records, this is the beginning of a new road for Drag Me Out.
