“‘Cat’s Eye Blue’ is a song about anxiety. And about fathers. How to express ourselves in real terms,” said Hiss Golden Messenger mastermind M.C. Taylor in a statement. “How to cut the poison out to avoid further harm. ‘Is this wicked word too bad to be spoken? You let the heart attack in. One taste and it’s broken.’ I sing about fathers–my own, specifically–because I almost lost mine during the writing of this record. He’s still here–I hear him outside playing with my kids right now–but I’ve been thinking about him a lot this past year.”
