“Kill Yourself” was inspired by Albert Camus’ “The Plague”. Only the words in uppercase are sung during the performance on this record. It was also a meditation and a salutation to friends and loved ones

Tarrou nodded. “Yes. But your victories will never be lasting; that’s all.”
Rieux’s face darkened. “Yes, I know that. BUT THAT’S NO REASON TO GIVE UP THE STRUGGLE.”
“No reason, I agree. Only, I now can picture what this plague must mean for you.”
“Yes. A never ending defeat.”...
“Who taught you all this, doctor?”
The reply came promptly:
