This intricate tune is the result of multifaceted instrumental multi tracking around a poem describing the despair of a bumble bee who finds himself unable to escape from a greenhouse. It may be described as the most conventional of all the ten tracks on the record. For the first time Reconciliation used more modern musical instruments in the recordings. These include acoustic guitar, bass, mandolin and violin. The guitar on this track is introduced bringing the tune more into a musical mid-range and giving it a rounder soundscape. This piece is carefully constructed and arranged.
