This is the only version of the song available. It uses deep, mechanical percussion loops and ambient synthesizers, intermittently joined by distant guitar. The curt, synthesized bassline prominent throughout the piece is reminiscent of "A Violet Fluid". The track also bears a strong similarity to "Blood From The Air" by Coil.
