Behind the Track | Sleeping in the Fallout

What is it about?

“Sleeping in the Fallout” is about a different kind of fallout. The emotional fallout of growing up in a home with a single mother who is struggling with her own emotional fallout. My father was not a good guy. We’ll just leave it at that.

Lyrics:

Burn the family you made down
Kill the lights on your way out
I'll be asleep in the fallout
Not that you're worried though
Not that you're worried though

Another town, another girl
She never saw you coming
Another ring on a finger
She tried her best but the new didn't linger

Repetition of the same old things
Another son
That you won't raise

Somebody could have warned her there were hard times coming

So burn the family you made down
Kill the lights on your way out
I'll be asleep in the fallout
Not that you're worried though

Another son
Six months younger than the other one
Another son you won't raise
A repetition of the same old things
Did she see you coming
Did she know there were hard times coming

So burn the family you made down
Kill the lights on your way out
I'll be asleep in the fall out
Not that you're worried though.
