About this song

The whole piece is a mesh of intriguing hooks. Starts out with music box sounds and quiet lyrics that seem to be about being on a failing performance circuit then kicks up to a fast new wave garage sound A fast but somber mood describes the feeling out of place and alienated from within. Similar to Aztec Camera, early REM.
