The 2018 Stereogum interview revealed that the song, recorded in Pennsylvania in the fall, begins and ends with Dollanganger’s own voice pitch-shifted and warped beyond recognition.
Lacrymaria Olor is a species of ciliates - a single-celled animal - that is found in freshwater ponds. Its name means "swan tear" or "tear of a swan" in Latin. Furthermore, it is one of the only living species who can grow a new head within minute if theirs is decapitated. It came into strange alignment with the cover art for Heart Shaped Bed; the depiction of Dollanganger, decapitated, on the cover of the record.
The second verse of the song is a portion of the demo titled, He Went Away, that was posted to Tumblr on January 6, 2016.
