The poison of choice for the saboteurs of today is conviction, and at the core of every conflict you will find these convictions”, states bassist Anthony Cui. “Whether they’re political or religious, these are the anti-theses of diplomacy and communication among humanity. Far too often, people use their convictions as barriers.” Vocalist Peter Tuthilladds, “the cogs under the surface of our skin represent the fact that we are all small parts of a big machine – planet earth. Until people with convictions are awakened, civilization will be locked in conflict. It’s time to wake the fuck up!
