Juicebox Vol 2, Side C, Track 3: “21 or Bust” by Traverse the Abyss.
Traverse the Abyss continues to draw from the The Gamble of Life with their latest session, “21 or Bust.”
“21 or Bust” is about how unfair life can be and how time moves too quickly for anyone to really make an impact on the world. The lyrics question whether or not life is even worth it, but then reassures the listener that they will keep on fighting, with the goal to “put this world to shame.”
In an interview with Metal Meat magazine, the band said that “21 or Bust” was one of the first songs they worked on with Traverse the Abyss, though the song was technically written for a previous project.
