Vocalist Kayla Shamlin explains "I came up with the idea for 'Love and Enemy' with one person in mind. This song is about a toxic friendship that I was in for most of my life. This friendship was filled with guilt, invalidation, ultimatums, and so much more. However, I thought this is what friendships were supposed to be like. This person created a false paradise that I lived in for years. I never thought about leaving because that was my person. I loved them so much. They were who I spent all my time with, even though it hurt me. It took me leaving, which was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done, to realize, “This isn’t what friendships are supposed to be like.” I suffered a lot emotionally afterwards. I learned so many things that this friendship took away from me. The lyrics, “I start to panic thinking about you,” is a true statement. Just thinking about them or seeing them standing in the same restaurant, store, or even my work, sent me into awful panic attacks. Every time I saw them, it felt like I was frozen. I dealt with that for years. Writing this song has given me a type of closure I wouldn't have gotten from them. The end of this song is everything I've wanted to say to them. For years I wanted it back. My sanity, my power, the ability to breathe freely without the fear of being dismissed. This is me taking my power back. The beauty of this song is that it can be used in any scenario. A toxic relationship with a partner, an addiction you can't get rid of, those awful thoughts in your head. This gave me the ability to live freely and hopefully, it will give you some hope for you to do the same."
