Highly Suspicious

Album: Evil Urges (2008)
  • Frontman Jim James told Mojo magazine May 2008: "This song is very theatrical. We sung in cartoon voices. They're supposed to sound like angry police officers, highly suspicious of you, knocking down your door. The main character, the one I'm singing, is this paranoid drug addict that the police are coming to get."
