A short and bitter poem about failure and disillusionment is set to a deliberate and disjointed rhythm. There is no melody for the poem, it is spoken in a resigned and near hopeless manner against the musical tracks. Electric guitar part takes the voice of a gathering emotional or social paralysis as it fights to control the inevitable and uncontrollable.

    Depressed funk is pretty accurate, like a demented, detached, lo-fi funk. It's so bleak, wihout any of wryness you got with Anthrax, but that riff is so fucking bad ass.

    @mottly you'd think so, but their new album isn't a patch on this. Nothing has been since. Also, this isn't the original Solid Gold recording.

    This is playing on the radio right now! God, the opening bars of that mean guitar. I was good at what I did, can't work out what I did wrong....

    First concert of my life: 1981, Gang of Four at the Magic Mountain amphitheater. I can remember every song to this day. They totally grooved on this one. Most recent concert of my life: Gang of Four, Portland, OR Chrystal Ballroom

    Almost makes more sense with King singing it now in his later years than it did with him as a young man trying to sound old, as has been mentioned.
