"Six years have passed since then," he explains. "A job with medical insurance and a 401k, not a ton of money but steady scraping by. It's a brutal job working in a 10-below freezer, lifting heavy-ass cases 60 hours a week. I come home tired and sore as f--- like most blue-collar people."

"Like many, I'm so tired when I come home from work I want nothing to do with my wife or kids. Which was the whole reason I quit touring in the first place. I'm so sore I can't sleep, so I drink and pop pills. I wake up in pain. I've watched, as I'm sure many of you have, the corporations rule and control the world. Our system has completely failed us.
"I feel I have failed my kids, my wife, and myself. I have failed all those who have believed in me. American Dream? This isn't living. So one drunken, frustrating night I wrote this song. It's not a song about feeling sorry for myself or anyone, and it's not an apology. It's just me saying, 'You know what world? With my last dying breath, I will spit Hell at thee.' Stay Defiant." Ladies and gentlemen, a first-hand account of how songs are born.
The song will be featured on their three-song 7-inch vinyl EP, 'Blackhearts and Blackouts,' which will be released through Paper + Plastick Records on March 20.
