When we asked what made you happy, and one fan responded "listening to Radiohead", we had a quandary: How do we write a good song about how listening to music makes you feel good? And a corollary: How do we pay homage to Radiohead while doing so? And also: What are we going to do with this synthesizer?

Radiohead is definitely a big influence on us. This tune tries to do a little bit of what they do.


Here's the pit of your stomach
Here's the bags of your eyes
Here's your fingers clenching into fists

And if I knew em
I'd kick the shit out of em

Here's where you breathe too fast
Here's where you panic
Here's where nothing fits

And if I knew em
I'd kick the shit out of em
