As on previous albums, Church built Windows of Your Heart around a few key songs to be featured in their live set. The title track is one such foundational piece with a slightly different guitar approach for Haunt that straddles the line between Heavy Metal and Hard Rock.
As for a few other songs on the record, Church treads familiar lyrical territory for Haunt by “musing on the dizzying speed with which time flies by”. The single is also noteworthy for the readily discernible Ozzy-isms in Church’s vocal melodies and timbre. The resemblance is not coincidental, but is an intentional tribute to the Prince of Darkness.
Ozzy Osbourne gave me the courage to be a singer. He taught me how to be a singer. My music naturally goes toward that.
