On the theme of the song, Silent Planet vocalist Garrett Russell has this to say: 

In July of last year, I learned of the genocide that’s happening in Ethiopia, and my gut instinct was ‘how the f*** have I not heard about this?’ Whole villages of men, women and children are being slaughtered, their bodies decomposing in the sun. It really troubles me that I can share a planet with these people and have no idea that that’s going on. The drawback of our myopic focus on COVID is that there are some human rights violations that are not nearly getting the worldwide audience and chorus of people calling for change.”

“People can affect change in a lot of different ways, and I hope people hear this and want to know what’s going on there, and get involved beyond a local level. We can’t turn a blind eye to atrocities happening on this Earth right now. We’ve all been given this unique, crazy privilege of being human beings for some amount of time, and it’s our responsibility as adults on this Earth to try to do something about this as this is happening in our time.”

Murals Guitarist Shane Gann had this to add:

“This song was always meant to hit a specific emotion – sort of an intriguing type of uncomfortable – and we’re honored that Garrett was inspired by the song in such a way that allows us to bring light to such an imposing topic as the massacres going on in the Tigray region of Ethiopia.”
