Providing further information about the meaning and the missive behind “Devil’s Den”, October Ends collectively adds: “This is a song about being in a situation that you’re trying to escape from. Throughout the track, there are scenarios that try to change the perspective of yourself. A lot of people feel like there’s only one way to resolve a situation they’re in, usually going for the easy way out. In this case, we’re trying to explore different paths to become the person who we really want to be. Being trapped in the den is like being in a constant loop trying to face your inner demons and try to show to people that there is always a way to dissolve their troubles. We hope that people can connect to the lyrics within this song and find their true self.”
