Counting 5-4-3-2-1

"Counting 5-4-3-2-1" is the first single from A City by the Light Divided, Thursday's second and final release on Island Records. This song was originally written during the Full Collapse-era, but vocalist Geoff Rickly has said that it was finally re-done in a new key and finally suitable to be recorded.[citation needed] Rickly has stated many times at live shows that he feels this song has earned the band both the most new fans and the most hatred from old fans.

Keyboardist Andrew Everding comments on the song's meaning and corresponding music video:

[Counting 5-4-3-2-1] specifically comes from not being happy in the town that you grew up in and wanting to get out as quickly as possible. When we do videos, we send out a call and receive treatments and that one was one of the first ones that we got from Artificial Army. We were originally going to do two videos…a low-budget animated video and then we were going to do another video to connect it, but then we started seeing what the animation was about. We usually go back and forth with ideas. But for the most part, we trust the director. It was our first storyline video but there are some performance elements to it.
