The opening track. Originally, this piece was much longer and more layered, but after a while of struggling to get the arrangement just right, it seemed logical to strip things down. Where once there was a twangy tremolo guitar, it now remains plugged in, but unplayed (with just the buzzing amplifier still audible). The bass line was originally played on a bass guitar, but ended up being played on the left side of a piano.
