Songfacts®:

  • Guitarist/keyboardist Anand Wilder told Complex magazine about this spacious, robotic chorale that ends Fragrant World: "This went through a bunch of incarnations. It's a pretty ballad to end the album. Chris (Keating) wrote it as kind of an homage to like, a Roy Orbison song like 'In Dreams,' that go from start to finish and keep building. We wanted to make a song that was a little bit softer and sweeter sounding."
