The story ends in a cliffhanger. But Chris promises there is a method to his madness.

The song is the follow up to 2020’s single, “World on Fire.”  the American Idol season 5 alum hinted in an interview with Variety that the two songs are part of a much bigger picture. 

“I’ve got a huge vision for all of this,” Chris said shortly after filming the video, “and it’s all going to make sense one day when the record comes out.”
