"How'd things get so crooked, backwards and wicked?" 

Considering the times, a pertinent line among this somewhat indolent, hiss happy, living room jangle by O and company. 

A song of contrasts, 'weird looks' makes no attempt to break barriers sonic-ally or structurally, however, it's the minor details within the lyrics that aim to resound. Slightly sardonic in tone, Owen sets up a combination of miniature scenes that may confound the listener, yet are codes to be cracked should one try. 

Ending with a question but no answer, a horn is cued - Perhaps a call to action?
