Talking about the single, Gary explains:
“When the High rise condo collapsed in Miami, Florida. It was so sad to me, and I realized this is happening all over the world where we are developing / expanding in cities and countrysides at a very fast pace. Land developers bought huge tracks of land and the boom was on.
After a little research, it didn’t take long to see that this is a very real problem, and people are literally sleeping in sink holes. That’s the first line from the song. The song is imaginary from the eye of someone who left the house only to come back to it collapsed and never got to say goodbye.”
