    My OpinionI guess it's all there, if you choose to connect everything. DeYoung has said the album was about not selling your dreams just to make money. The rich society matrons on the cover are all wearing earrings that are the moai statues from the Easter Islands. Wearing them as if they were prizes only the rich could afford to have, while representing a civilization that built these grand stone tributes, only to disappear themselves without explanation. Explorer Thor Heyerdahl spent a great deal of time on the Easter Islands, and the book he wrote about his experiences was called Aku-Aku. The song fits in very nicley, thematically and as a musical coda to the Pieces of Eight album.
