The backing chorus is cool, as it adds a sense seriousness, or a sense of darkness, that might not have existed outside of the lyrics. Although I didn't spend any time trying to make out the words in detail, I did pick up on the use of "cleverer," and that comes off as a bit of a stretch and/or gimmicky. Initially, I was going to give it a 3.78 because it's simply not my style, but since the group seemed to be putting in a good effort, I'm going with a 4.5/10.
