The record's nervy, aggressive title track begins with Arone Dyer ominously describing how she '[carries] a crest of weight chest dense with general doom/ I awoke to find this as my vital sense.' She goes on to declare herself, "Not the last pawn with a gun," and 'a force to be decreed,' but it's a given that there's more to her message than crude violence. "It makes perfect sense that Dyer and her bandmate, Aron Sanchez, chose to unveil the record's artwork with 'General Dome'-- a piece inspired by a Sol LeWitt exhibition that Dyer caught at New York's Dia Beacon gallery, in which the two have created a new graphical, coded alphabet with which to create cryptic messages. Obviously, it's no basic A-Z; the band will post the key to uncode the messages on their website closer to the record's release."
