Four piece Belfast, Ireland based Ajenda crafts a powerful song that calls humanity as a whole out on the downward spiral it is collectively in. A spiral of ever prevalent and seemingly always growing hatred, and its resulting segregation, between people on personal, racial, ethic, and "class" levels. Vocalist Jen delivers some well done and angry vocals to fit the theme of the song, Gavin's guitars match this anger at points with Janny and Peter, bass and drums respectively, keeping the mood heavy and serious. Desperation and frustration are emoted well throughout the song, frustration especially comes across in the narration of the lyrical content. The emotion doesn't feel as though it's at the boiling over point quite yet, it feels just before a person reaches the moment that they either give in and join the masses or rises up to follow a path of righteousness or self righteousness, depending on personality.
