“There’s a lot of singing for the beaten-down and the people who don’t have a voice,” stated Virginmarys singer and guitarist Ally Dickaty. “This particular song is about a couple that is escaping from the society that they’re living in because they’ve just had enough of it."
He goes on to say, “This album has been filtered through the anger and frustration of living in a crumbling and f–ked up society run by those who couldn’t care less whether you live, die, eat or starve so long as their own status and life style is maintained within a self serving system. The overall theme of the album is the divides among people, freedom and power, injustice, inequality and corruption. Anger, disillusionment, injustice, frustration about where I feel we are in today’s society. History repeating. Restraint by systems that benefit the few and the choices left to take part or be cast aside and face persecution. The rise of depression and anxiety and use of anti-depressants and drugs across the globe. Disillusion in politicians and democracy. There’s a lot of divides with us in Britain, many created by the government and media turning people against one another. We are brainwashed with who to love, who to fear, who is good and who is evil.”
