A while ago, our friends in The Directive got in contact with us to do a split with them, and obviously we were stoked. I made the melody and lyrics to the chorus when I was feeling pissed, sad and, creative all at once. So we started writing some stuff at practice, and it eventually became this song. The song is about realizing no one, no matter how much you want them or care about them, should have the power to make you miserable, or influence the decisions you make. Some things are meant to be... well, broken. And that's how you'll feel, but most of the time it's just the beginning of something new. Or something even worse. I thought about what this person would think, or say or feel if they heard this song, which is where "Are You Listening?" came from.
