Cadaver can be traced to Cleveland, Ohio. I was out there playing a show, as that is the #1 way to trick me into coming to Cleveland, and while there I got to catch up with an old friend who I had not seen in a handful of years. She was in med school, and since we had first met in Hebrew School, that notion was wild. Anyone you knew small being big is wild, I think. She told me about med school and one incredible fact stuck with me. Her class was sectioned off into small groups and each group studied a different preserved, dead body. But it wasn't just one day of poking and prodding. Each group studied the same person for two full years. They kept returning to their assigned cadaver and would learn new things about the person's life based on the clues they could find from pulling them apart. And my friend's subject, the one her group studied, he was diferent than the rest. He had a tattoo on his butt. I was so floored by the idea of studying the same dead person over the course of two years, but also loved thinking about how every time they picked him apart they were aware of the butt tattoo. Whenever I tell this story I am asked about what the tattoo was, and every time I have to admit that I didn't ask or can't remember. So this song grew out of that man. And through it I hope you can decide what that tattoo could have been.
