Appears On (Mixes): I'm Strapped To This Fucking Twin Bed: The Best Of The Handsome Family

Song Notes: People going slowly towards their doom is kind of a recurring theme on Handsome Family songs, and here's another one! This is, oddly enough, about a man who discovers a bottomless hole, and abandons his family to see how deep it is. He lowers a basket on a rope down, but the hole's deeper than the rope goes, so his obsession with the hole's bottom drives him to cut the rope. As he falls, he knows he'll die, but he hasn't hit bottom yet. - Rev. Syung Myung Me
