Trepanation Blues

Story Behind The Song

Trepanation has been called "an alternative medical approach toward mental well-being", but, in laymans' terms - it is the act of drilling a hole into one's head in order to increase blood flow to the brain in an attempt to create a euphoric, more cerebral feeling. The song is arranged in a way to tell the story of someone experiencing the feelings that would drive them to undergo such a procedure, the actual prodecure itself, and then resolving back into hopeless realization of life an its impracticalities.
