    General CommentWayne in liner notes says:
    "This song began as a single chord played on piano that can be heard accompanying the singing and guitar playing on CD No.3. The drums and bass were recorded separately but made to sound together on CD No.1... CDs No.2 and No.4 have rising and descending vocal melodies with random flex-o-tone banging away here and there. All elements of this song were played randomly. All based around that first chord played on the piano. I think this song implies that there's a little bit of relief when a person acknowledges to themselves that they "don't understand" what's going on... But also I think it tries to imply that there are some things that a person will never understand, some things that can't even be completely figured out. Only you don't know this, so you keep trying to figure it out over and over."

    General CommentActually, this was my least favorite song on Zaireeka. I think this might be a good song, but having it at the beginning of an album that's a little difficult to change tracks isn't where I'd like it to be. I like to impress people with Zaireeka, and this song just gives off a bad impression to non-Lips listeners. Unless you're high. Then its incredible.
