"It's a sad and sickening thought that some people live in fear of their own families. Whether spousal abuse, child abuse, neglect or sexual abuse—it's all tragic on a life threatening scale. Monsters will create monsters through their own actions. This song reflects the outright anger that I have for these people who think they can harm another in their own family." -Matt Heafy.[4]
