  • Lyrics
  • This sledgehammer of a rock song finds Sleater-Kinney insisting "We're wild and weary but we won't give in!" Guitarist and co-vocalist Carrie Brownstein explained during an interview with NPR that the track was about, "trying to posit yourself — your body or your mind — into a space that is... assured, and safe, and sort of rejecting criticism."
