Album: The Great Depression

Label: Fearless Records
Singer Patty Walters comments:
“‘The Fire, The Dark’ is about self-destruction. Weighed down by his regrets and resentments, The Poet turns to habits of self-destruction as a coping mechanism, isolated and completely withdrawn from the world, neurotic and unstable, consequently jeopardizing his relationship with his wife.
This song in particular is one of the boldest musical departures from the As It Is many have come to know. It was a pleasure and a privilege writing this song alongside Larry Hibbitt of Hundred Reasons, a band whose sound directly influenced The Great Depression’s darker direction.”
