This is a song that developed from a keyboard pounding session at 3 in the morning when I was in my 20s and fairly inebriated. Fortunately I pressed record on the old cassette player. I found it years later and have been developing it further ever since.
I wanted to make it about a serial killer, how he developed into such. This was based on a book I read back then called By Reason of Insanity. The main character, Thomas Bishop, thought that Caryl Chessman was his real dad because his mom got raped up on lover’s lane.
Anyway, I never got around to writing the lyrics. I tried, but they just wouldn’t come. Maybe I will try again at some time.
But for now, here it is.
