1-10-09 Root Baby
The night of this song, Sarah and I watched a movie called Pan's Labyrinth. We were underwhelmed by the movie as a whole - it had the potential to be a great fantasy movie, but spent too much time trying to be a gripping character study of an insane warlord. In any case, we both liked the mandrake root baby that Ofelia nurtures under her bed to bring her mother back to health. So I wrote a song about it.
