"This is probably my favorite song as far as vocal melodies go. When I was writing the lyrics, I was really focused on bringing out Josh's subtle, ambient layers in the music with strong melodies in the verses. The track is so layered I felt it needed two voices playing off of each other to compensate for the complexity of the music without sounding cheesy. I based this song off of a friend of mine who used to be like a brother to me, but then we had a huge falling-out. He later had a son. I was friends with the baby's mother and she had told me about how torn their father/son relationship was. I don't know why it hit me so hard, but I felt like that kid should've been like a nephew to me. Knowing my friend, I wrote a song that said all the things I couldn't say because we didn't talk anymore at that point. Eventually, I got up the balls to talk to him and now we have patched things up for the most part. I feel like writing that song helped me push out a lot of the demons between us." - Travis Sykes

If He Dies, He Dies - Glass Cloud

If you turn your head away
You will miss everything
(It's so sad)
It should mean everything
A love like this lost
And no remorse
"My son, it's just a burden of divorce"

Mark my words
I would drop everything
But a lie to the face
Is the ultimate way
Out of this

If you turn your head away
It might be easy to sleep
(But, it don't matter)
It festers underneath
The body just burns
Like open wounds
"My boy, there's just nothing left to do"

Mark my words
I would drop everything
But a lie to the face
Is the ultimate way
Out of this

Like Oedipus
Like Laius
Like everything
Like everything
Everything

Mark my words
I would drop everything
Everything

Mark my words
I would drop everything

Mark my words
You will miss everything

Mark my words
Mark my words
