Lead vocalist Tornado on the single:

"YNAMW (You Never Ask Me Why) started out as a funny triplet feel guitar riff with sound effects of whipping and wicked screaming. The first idea was to write a song with the feel of a Clint Eastwood type of a Western movie. While being on a sick leave, vocalist Tornado Bearstone watched The Twilight Saga (accidentally of course). Somehow the idea of superhuman powers, beauty and eternal love appealed to Tornado's state of mind and a modern Cowboy - Vampire character was born in his imagination. So you can say that the story of You Never Ask Me Why was inspired by the movies."

He continues, "As a composition YNAMW is somewhere between Gentle Savage's songs Run Run Poor Boy and Karelian Magic. It has a melodic chorus that gives a good contrast to the quite bold and rhythmic feel of the verses. You can easily recognize it as a Gentle Savage song with the guaranteed sounds they are already known for. There's plenty of interesting things going on both musically and story wise as the Cowboy - Vampire goes out looking for the one he loves! And bites."
