The opening track from the American Psychedelic Pop band Yeasayer's third album, Fragrant World, addresses those who profit without labor. Guitarist/keyboardist Anand Wilder told Complex magazine: "It kind of reminds me of a Boyz II Men song. [Laughs.] This one kind of captures a demented R&B sound. It's a little bit skittish, kind of abstract in the beginning, then drops into a more R&B flavored chorus. It's about people that don't work or use their hands. A criticism of people who don't create anything."
The song was debuted by Yeasayer at their June 22, 2012 concert at Cannery Ballroom, Nashville.
