Can't shake the feeling we're moving backwards
History repeating itself
“Coliseum” combines a break-up song with the recently popular Roman Empire, creating a Bloc-rock take on the classic formula. Simultaneously critiquing the progress of his love and the world today, the singer sees the cycles of pain, romance, and torture beginning again and aims to end it as harshly as the Late Antique fall of Rome. Like the Coliseum, fragments will remain, but the whole will be made useless and dead.
