Did You Know?

Interesting facts and trivia about Heat Above. By Songfacts®.

This ethereal song is from Greta Van Fleet's second album, The Battle at Garden's Gate. The record finds the band exploring the human experience, with this track being about a human utopia.

The first verse finds Josh Kizska reflecting on how love is always the answer in tough times. Sorrows of the Earth May our tears of rain wash down to bathe you During the second and third verse, Kiszka sings of an army "'marching across the land" spreading a message of peace. We do not fight for war But to save the lives of those who do so

The reference to an army spreading a message of peace ties in with the title of Greta Van Fleet's debut album, Anthem of the Peaceful Army. Asked by Kerrang who the peaceful army is, Josh Kizska replied: "The phrase originated from a poem I wrote at 5 a.m. one morning. I carried it around with me for a year and when we started writing the album it started to make more sense. It's open to interpretation what the Peaceful Army itself is, but I think it's a banding together of people who believe in a world of freedom and truth and kindness. There's so much hate and oppression and violence and bulls--t, which has been going on for thousands of years and has never worked."
