  • Lyrics
  • Ben Folds told Rolling Stone magazine: "On the record I was thinking, 'I'm really not a big fan of the doctor songs like, 'I went to the doctor with my problems and he couldn't solve my problem.' And so I thought, 'It seems like everyone that's got a problem goes to about five different doctors now and they're all like eastern doctors and chiropractors and a psychic.' We're pretty self-obsessed, so that's what it's about."
