In Our Cathedral
by Eels

Album: The Deconstruction (2018)

Songfacts®:

  • Eels closes The Deconstruction with this spiritual number. Mainman Mark Oliver Everett explained to Billboard:

    "For that song, I was thinking that we all have one place within ourselves that we can go to to make things better, and it's just the ability to accept whatever your reality is and decide to be happy with it. But that's not easy, and, again, I'm trying to remind myself as often as possible that I can be happy with my situation - or not happy. I do have some choice in the matter."
