Elaborates the band on the report’s surrounding themes, “Whereas not each track offers with it, lots of the album’s lyrics focus on being bought on the American dream, but additionally realizing it’s oftentimes used as a skinny veil to cloak a doubtful system/entity geared toward bleeding you dry, even after loss of life.  A whole lot of ‘strain’ comes with that, and a way of coping with it could possibly be taking a nihilistic mindset as expressed within the track ‘Give Your self Away,’ or making an attempt to outrun the rat race as expressed within the aforementioned track, ‘Demon Legs.’”
