Wild Goose Chase[edit]

"Wild Goose Chase" is the eighth song on this album. The song's lyrics are critical of the misuse of technology. The musicians who perform this song, however, make extensive use of electronic synthesizers, vocoders and talk boxes, which exemplify a harmless form of advanced tecnhnology, while contributing to the song's message and unique sound.

This song laments the misguided use of technology for purposes which the song's author, David Hinds, views as unnatural, such as in vitro fertilization.
