“The Kill” is a song that most civilization would look at and also think it’s about a relationship through somebody else, however it’s really around a connection with yourself. It’s about confronting your fear and confronting the reality about who you are.

The interesting thing around this song was the truth that it was in ¾, it was in a timeless waltz, a little little bit quick of a tempo, yet that’s what was interesting around it as well is the truth that we were able to perform somepoint classical and that tied some elements together.

Matt Wachter:

The theme of the song has a lot to do with confronting yourself, shedding your mind.

This is a song dubbed “The Kill”. But don’t be scared, it’s a nice song. About losing your mind.
