1Overall Description
Excellent song that extends the industrial tradition of Skinny Puppy. One of the unique features of Simian Itch music is the well thought out use of contrasts and this piece of music employs that well in the backing music and the vocal track.

If I am to interpret the lyrics correctly this is an exploration of the author's (and listener's) place in the world - a question of quest of purpose - or purpose of the quest. I mention this because conferring a message is clearly a goal with the publication of the lyrics.

The production is very clear, especially if you take into account the high amount of distortion present that gives a very, very thick texture.

There is nothing that I would change as the song has balance and poise.

Actually, the song was sorta about anti-mainstream and making music without rules. Your interpretation is valid too though :]
