About the Song: Glass Houses
This song is about the hypocrisy in our social circles by placing judgment on human beings for simply sinning different than the herd.
A song that’s very personal to me, one that I actually had to pay a couple hundred dollars to argue with my engineer and at that time label owner over the best direction for the song.
