  • Lyrics
  • This is a track from the first of eleven EPs that make up the physical release of Teargarden by Kaleidyscope, a 44-song concept album released for free over the Internet.
  • Billy Corgan told Musicradar.com about this song: "I wrote it sitting around backstage on one of the SP tours in 2008, and it is pretty simple in that the whole song is built around a very driving acoustic guitar, with no drums or bass. When we were playing the song on the Spirits tour, it was just acoustic plus mandolin and violin, which I really liked because of its bluegrass vibe. In the studio it's totally changed and now sounds like some kind of gothic Indian orchestra is playing the song with the same original guitar part. I'm pretty surprised by how it has turned out to be so psychedelic - I didn't expect that but guess it is just where my head is at right now."
