Frontman Dana Helmuth offered:
“‘Smoke Is Rising’… at the time I wrote this there were a lot of really dark and heavy things going on in my life. I really felt like the lyrics I wrote ‘marching dead under crimson skies, rivers they rise up and swallow me’ … so I began to realize that I needed to put everything I had left into this burning sacrifice of YATRA, and I believed smoke would rise from this, and that kingdoms would fall.”
