Message of song:

Damned if I know…


How it was written:

Written in a state of ennui, but not so overwhelmed that I couldn't express myself (To whom, and for what purpose? What's the point, anyway?) Note the lyrics about the paradox of self-reference, “The questioner is not separate…” How can one be objective about a system one is part of? Gödel's theorem, the woodcuts of M.C. Escher, etc. come to mind.


Musical notes:

Picking part in C for the verse, with interesting timing for the vocal melody. Hard rock C to G for the chorus.
