The band had this to say about the song, “This song is where the record’s title comes from. It seems like every generation in some way repeats all of the previous generation’s mistakes, and inherits most of, if not all of their vices. War, Racism, Sexism, Homophobia the list could go on. It seems crazy that after all mankind has gone through and learned, that these all exist. In many ways, the world we live in now is far more terrifying than it ever was for our parents when they were our age. All of us are close to the age where we could be starting families of our own, but the thought of doing that in these times often induces immediate fear and anxiety. No matter how much we learn from the mistakes of our elders, and how many opportunities we have to be better; we still fall prey to the same vices. We are the product of our ancestors and failed ambitions to be better. We are the poisoned youth.”
