Sinister Side (4:04)

Cover of Bombadil

From Bombadil

The lyrics for “Sinister Sider”, featured on Bombadil’s 2006 EP, were inspired by true events which occured during guitarist Bryan Rahija’s time in Bolivia as an exchange student. During an outing, Bryan was appraoched by two men sporting uniforms and badges who took him into custody for reasons not understood to him at the time. Assuming they were police officers, Bryan complied with them and got into their car. They drove him out of town, and by what he calls a decision to have mercy they decided to take all but five dollars from him and strand him outside of the city. Witnessing his abductors displaying human emotions and concerns inspired him to write a song about a pick pocket who’s just doing his job.
