If this song sounds a bit morbid, it's only because its co-writer, Spirit bassist Mark Andes, worked on it when he was confined to bed with the flu. References to death and leaving this mortal coil abound, all of them acid-magnified. In this way, it's not dissimilar to some of the Doors' songs of the period. Heavily orchestrated and arranged, it has a slightly jazzy feeling, crossed with some avant-garde classical. Again, Randy California's heavy, Hendrix-inspired guitar is one of the most breathtaking features of the track, and crossed with Jimmy Haskall's strings, the effect is stunning. A brief hit in Florida when it was released, it gave Spirit some of their first radio exposure.
