  • Lyrics
  • In this song, Primus frontman Les Claypool describes a friend who hangs himself, leaving his little brother and girlfriend to find his lifeless body when they return from the grocery store. In an interview with Addicted to Noise, he said: "About a friend of mine that hung himself in his apartment and it was basically a true story. I told the story. Nothing over-dramatized or anything about it. That was just the story."
