I was recently listening to CBC Uncover Season 1 about the NXIVM cult. in a bonus episode they described an unethical experiment doctor performed on women in the cult showing them traumatic scenes without very much warning, first a scene from American History X, all the way to, horrifyingly, what must have been a bona fide snuff film. It definitely illustrated how even though the women weren't injured there was lasting psychological harm

It must mean a lot for the songwriter knowing that a song he thought everyone had forgotten about was stuck in someone's head so much that he was able to recreate a big chunk of it like that after all these years!
