Kellin Quinn goes “Into The Dark” with Point North on vulnerable new song
The music video accompanying "Into The Dark" is animated and follows a single character, although we do get to see what appears to be an animated Kellin Quinn while singing his verse.
The song is an emotional one for Point north singer Jon Lundin. "To us this song is about what it feels like to be vulnerable," Lundin says. "I wrote about the highs and lows someone can feel when they put down their walls and wear their heart on their sleeve."
When asked about Kellin Quinn's feature on the song, Lundin comments that he was excited to have the Sleeping With Sirens frontman's talents on the track.
"We wrote this song wanting to do something a little different and heavier while keeping some of the Retrograde spirit alive. We were very excited to ask Kellin Quinn to hop on a feature and we couldn't be happier with how the song turned out."

"Into The Dark" Lyrics
What’s it like being broken
I know that life ain’t fair
But you’re the only one who cares
And if our pain is shared
You know it’s yours I’m holding
Cuz if it’s mine to bear
I’m not afraid to be repaired
I’m treading in your water
I don’t wanna but I gotta
You know I like it when I’m drowning
Reaching for your hand like it’s all that I can count on
Into the dark
Trying not to lose myself when I go too far
Where do I start
When every turn I take keeps us apart
I need a sunrise in the dawn
Show me what the world is running from lately
I used to see you around almost every day
With some other guy hand up on your waist
And I saw the smile that was on your face
I guess I never thought that you could just replace me erase me
But now babe it doesn’t even phase me
I kissed you good bye
And moved on from the madness
And like a phoenix I rose from the ashes
Shutting down cuz I feel nothing
Cuz I’m always trying find something
Feelin like I wanna give up think I got a problem now
Don’t believe in what I can’t see
If I fall I wanna fall free
Even if we never let go you just gotta say so
