It's a very complete, crafted song. We've done lots of short songs that are interesting blasts of sound, but as you go on you kind of up the ante on the craft part. That's a lot of the reason why a lot of people's early work is more direct. As they go along they get more baroque.
  • Used on The Late Show with David Letterman on April 22, 2009 as a theme for the "Dick, are you alright?" segment.
