For this, their second album, My Jerusalem frontman Jeff Klein claims to have been inspired by the idea that “Nobody ever paid money to see Harry Houdini escape being buried alive. They wanted the small chance of seeing him killed by the weight of the earth on top of him”. It’s a fair indication of what’s to come: images of drowning, burial, suicide and sickness permeate the songs and the overall tone is one of unrelenting bleakness. The title track sets the scene. "We’re all animals in the wilderness …. We’re gonna drown in the river" mutters Klein.
