In Their Words: "'You wanna even the score ... but there's no one around who cares anymore.' When growing up I think it's natural to think the world is against you. It's a tough thing to outgrow. To be fighting in a war that has been over for years ... There's a bittersweet pain and nostalgia looking back at some of your enemies. As much as they may've hurt your feelings or put you down for no reason, as you get older and get more comfortable with yourself it seems so small, like it never happened, but you almost kind of miss that conflict, that rage that can inspire. The melody is pop and the lyrics are a mellowed angst -- an attempt at softening the edges of a strange pain, trying to find some kind of balance." -- Guitarist Chris Warren
