David Draiman - "If we want there to still be a habitable world for our children and our children's children then we need to start being more responsible"
Shauna O'Donnell from Muen Magazine and The Gauntlet recently interviewed Disturbed frontman David Draiman. When Shauna asked Draiman about the message behind the track "Another Way to Die", he responded "The song is about our general abuse of the planet we live on and our lack of responsibility when it comes to it. There is no specific incident to be perfectly honest. The song was written five months prior to the actual BP disaster. We are all conscious of what is happening to the planet. You can't ignore certain things, you can't ignore glaciers receding, you can't ignore the increasing intensity of storms over the face of the planet, it is almost as if the planet is trying to cleanse itself. You can't ignore the layer of smog and disgustingness that you have to pass through when you are landing in Los Angeles. There are cities in China where the sky is almost black as night throughout the entire year because the air is so heavily polluted. These are things that are irrefutable. If we want there to still be a habitable world for our children and our children's children then we need to start being more responsible and caring for our planet more."
