Album: The Beast In Its Tracks (2013)

  • Lyrics
  • Ritter told MSN CA: "That's one of those songs where it feels happy-go-lucky, but the central image is this bonfire. Brightly burning. Very hot. Kind of uncontrollable thing. It's not un-violent. It's fun. It feels like a colourful, scrapbook song. You cut out a bunch of stuff from a magazine, then you paste it on a piece of paper, and it's really colourful. Like (The Historical Conquests of Josh Ritter track) 'To the Dogs or Whoever'. That sort of style. I love doing that."
