  • Lyrics
  • This song features Yeah Yeah Yeahs vocalist Karen O. The band's frontman Wayne Coyne told the Swiss music site Die Klangschau: "For the Karen O tracks, I just called her up in her hotel room and we just did it right over the telephone. It's pretty absurd."
  • Coyne (from press notes): "Tribal conquering dirge. Karen O kicks in singing with me and Steven (Drozd, multi-instrumentalist). A final revelation that celebrates the power of nature and implies that the only laws worth obeying are the laws one makes for oneself. Experience is the only teacher."
