This song is a spin off of "Pet" from their previous album Thirteenth Step
. "Pet" has been interpreted as a song about how one is controlled by drugs, but many people felt it was also about political control. They released this version on Emotive
, a clearly politically motivated album, using a more aggressive tone and producing a much angrier version. In this version they are speaking of how the government tries to think for you.
