  • Lyrics
  • Guitarist and principal songwriter Serge Pizzorno told Q magazine: "There's a Native American call at the start. It's got an 'Immigrant Song' feel. We were after that huge John Bonham drum sound to go with it. It's massive, it stomps on everything else. We wanted to get that crunch you hear on old Turkish psychedelic records, really in your face."
