In Their Words: “This is one of the oldest songs on the record. The title came first, a play on ‘Go Down, Moses.’ I remember I wrote the line, ‘Hail to the creep / that swept you off your feet,’ when Trump became president. It was more of a knee-jerk reaction to the downright absurdity of someone like Trump leading a nation than it was a political or partisan dig. The song as a whole is fragmented and almost quilted together, creating one useful and practical thing out of many small but no less important things. Like a recipe for a stew or homemade biscuits. Every ingredient counts and brings forth the whole.” — Pony Bradshaw
