Dan's mandolin-driven blues rocker is a commentary on our need for speed, Here comes the man with the basket, who puts it down and sits before it to play the shehnai, that winding nasal sound of double reeds played through a long, thin pipe. From the basket comes not the sacred cobra, but the rope, that stretches up to the sky. The man climbs the rope, then it falls empty back into the basket.
