About this song

"Camilo," is ultimately about a man and war. In October of 2003, Sergeant Camilo Mejia, returned home from Iraq and tried to be a conscientious objector, however he was rejected. A conscientious objector is someone who refuses to participate in military service on the basis of religious or moral principles. Sergeant Mejia was considered AWOL. The first verse explains the life of one man ending. "His eyes shut tight bracing for the blow. Resigning his life to the metal held, in another man's hand," explains how this man knew he was going to die and all he could do was shut his eyes and wait.
