My second proper solo track, from the Death Ray Scientific collective's only full-length recording, released Halloween night of 2008 at the Dinkytowner (R.I.P.) in Minneapolis. Some of you might notice that I re-used the verses for the final track of my album Surreal Talk. It just never quite felt right saying, "I flow quick so my soul don't get cold when I expose it" as slowly as I say it here.

NOTES FOR PARENTS: This one's dark and slow, but there are only a couple of minor swears.
