"'After a Lie' is special to me because it's based on something I used to worry a lot about. it's about pretending to be someone you're not just to get to fit in. I wrote 'After a Lie' a year ago, and I hope and think many people can relate to it.”
The song also represents a shift in the musical direction, going into a more melodic approach and experimenting with mixing genres like trap, metalcore and rock. STORM says:
“'After a Lie' is a bit more mellow than my other songs, and I am focusing more on melodies than screaming, as this is a direction I wanted to explore. I love how the song blends various genres; and I think a part of the magic in 'After a Lie' is the transitions from trap verses to Metalcore choruses and then the orchestral outro.”
