This song was an attempt to create a really epic track, with complex "literary" monkey business in the lyrics, social commentary, and shifting keys and backgrounds to suggest a series of narrative voices (including a serial killer). If you're already rolling your eyes, may I suggest you may enjoy the electric twelve-string guitar.


Lee Wilhoit sang background vocals on this-- some tough fucking parts, too. He worked hard on this session. I believe I can hear a bit of Dave Pera singing some backgrounds too, though the tricky stuff is all Lee.
