Frontwoman Suzy Bravo recounts the inspiration behind the track:

“During my junior year in high school, a beautiful freshman girl that everyone knew was raped and murdered. It was discovered that another classmate who gave her a ride home after a party she was drunk at the night she was murdered, was found guilty and executed. Years after the execution, I found out that several people at that party sexually assaulted her earlier that night. I don’t believe that those people were ever brought to justice and ever convicted for what they did to her before the murder took place.

About two years later, a 12-year-old girl I know was raped and I had to be the one to call the rape crisis hotline, tell her mother, find help for her and her mother, go to the hospital with them, talk to the police, never find out who the rapist was nor see him brought to justice, and I’ve had to watch her deal with the demons that she’s had to face many decades after it happened to her.

Her rape and my classmate’s death fueled so much anger in me that I’ve never been able to resolve. It angers me that these people continue to exist without ever having justice served to them and then dealing with this feeling of helplessness for not being able to do anything about it. Writing and singing about it helps me work through those emotions and maybe imagine for a minute that the reality is that there is badass goddess out there taking care of business.”
