The song is about the apocalypse. That's going to be visited on all of us. Birth. Yeah. They did read after I was born this. I'm playing the song because this is from the soundtrack of I think my favorite horror movie of all time where wolf in London American world in London which used sound as before the show and was one of the first movies. I counted that was like whether these in soundtrack and a great way you'd blue moon know, a couple of versions of that you had this, and it just it just worked on every level for me.
