"It's about how this world has lost its way. How everywhere you turn there is something disgusting in disguise. Everyone turns a blind eye but in the end we are all embroiled in its filth. It's about how it tempts us to join this "evil" side and how ultimately we unknowingly promote it. Whether it be by buying violent movies or pornography, idolizing 'rock stars' and other image conscious mediums or indulging in lavish unnecessary material items. We all just close our eyes until it becomes trivial 7pm news and topical conversation. Those who have the power to curb our demise are caught up in corruption, greed and compromised values. In the end this will be all we know and all we see. It will be our god."

Two other tracks that didn't quite make the album were released on the Shakedown single.The two tracks are 'X Marks The Spot' and an unplugged version of Shakedown. While an acoustic guitar can be heard on the track,it seems to consist mostly of electronic drum beats and Josh's vocals aren't quite as forced as the other tracks.
Two singles have been released for radio airplay and have had videos filmed, in the form of the songs "Shakedown" and "You've Had Your Chance". Both songs have reached the top 5 in Triple J's Super Request Countdown and their videos reach the top 5 of JTV Saturday on Australian Network ABC. The newly released film clip is called "The Bonesman" and was filmed at a melbourne gaol featuring about 50 fans that were invited to join through a Myspace competition. "The Bonesmen" reach number 2 in the JTV Saturday countdown on Australian Network ABC. Shakedown was voted number 7 on jtv's countdown of 2007's 20 best Australian made videos.
