In Their Words: "We went into the studio with vague fragments. We were coming off our first tour through Wyoming and Montana, and the news was buzzing about building a wall across the Mexico border. The whole country was fragmented politically while we were, literally, in some very isolated places. It's easy to see how isolation can lead to fear and intolerance. That's sort of what shaped the song, lyrically. Meanwhile, Sam [Kassirer] helped us build the connective tissue needed to turn these vague notions and musical ideas to make one of our most experimental arrangements yet.” — Chris Freeman
