A lengthy improvisation track by the Crossfishes concludes this album captures the stage brilliantly with an anti-war anthem that emotes horror. Although one wonders where the improvisation is heading during the first minutes, the musicians coalesce and their anti-war message emerges: 'Covered with come / covered with blood / covered with oil / covered with oil / then I took out a box of matches / and took out a match / and then I lit it / and then I set myself on fire / oh, I am a lonely candle in the wind / oh, can you see me burning? / Yes, we can see the bodies burning. Eleven dead in Jerusalem today, more predicted tomorrow. Voices explode in the street. Ant Weis's anguished wails build up to finish the album, a passionate warning against the hideousness of war. By its close, this album is anti-apocalypticism, a resistance to all-consuming violence.
