Musically one of the more interesting tracks. It features a beautiful meandering jazz shuffle with Doug never repeating a phrase. England was were music was happening and the Masters continued to see as many bands as possible, some of them quite obscure. The influence on the music is obvious here with Doug and Jim trying to create an amalgum of all that was happening and then putting their own stamp on it.

However the Masters were always a riif driven band. Half way through one of Doug's best riffs comes in with his soaring soloing weaving in and out and around it.

Lyrically the song reflects a young Jim's concern with the world and where it's heading.
