In this song, we tried to create the darkness and threat of the violent, white-supremacist groups and their twisted ways of trying to justify attacks on people by using symbols and rhetoric of some higher cause.
Their lack of justification is referred to in the words that describe the burning cross as “it’s not a candle burning, and it’s not a Sunday night.”
The music goes for a hardness and aggressiveness and blends jazz and country, rural and urban.
