Shai Hulud has always had a reputation for penning thought-provoking and deeply meaningful lyrics. Their latest effort, Reach Beyond the Sun, is no exception. To further communicate the those lyrics, the band has posted a lyric video for one of their favorite tracks, A Human Failing, on Last week, Matt Fox, along with Matt Fletcher, posted a written break down of the tracks over on In that article, Fox elaborated on A Human Failing: “The subject of “true strength” has come up in a few Shai Hulud songs throughout the years. Without going into great detail, we can confidently confirm “true strength” is not allowing yourself to turn cold. In my experience, the people I’ve met who play “cool” and keep aloof can’t survive without a deep support system. They think this makes them “strong.” More often than not, they are the weakest, most genuinely frail people I come across. It’s truly a cold world. Keep yourself warm.”
