Sound: One of the best features of this song is the buildup in the beginning, with a starting breakdown to get it going, and the cock of the shotgun. This is one of the best buildups within this genre of music. The next greatly noticeable moment is when the dynamics change, during the second round of “Is it time to escape this hell? Living my whole life as someone else. Tell me why can’t I control myself” the breakdown rhythm changes and adds a good start to the closing of the song. It is one of my favorite opening tracks within this genre of music. 8/10
Lyrics: If you had to generalize the idea, I would say anger, and insanity. The band uses the topic well, being descriptive within the idea. Lyrics like, “Sanity’s a mask that I refuse to wear.” and, “Look into my eyes and see the psycho inside.” do a great job of conveying the message of insanity and losing your mind. It captures the emotion of it and does well at alluding to the message without just stating it. The clean vocals, “Is it time to escape this hell? Living my whole life as someone else, Tell me why can’t I control myself.” show less of the angry side and, I interpret, a more desperate side, with the indication of not being yourself. The lyrics of this song are very well written and compliment the sound of the song. 8/10
