The song ‘Sorrow’ was originally entitled ‘Zorro’. It was written about a recurring nightmare Matt used to have in which Zorro would hide under Matt’s bed, waiting for him to come out and fight. Zorro would always win the fight, and would then make Matt live in a city Zorro built. 
 
BONUS FACT: Nancy’s heart broke a little every time she heard Matt whimpering in his sleep, “Don’t leave my hyper heart alone…”

BONUS BONUS FACT: The title almost stuck, until one day near the end of the High Violet recording sessions, Bryan put his foot down and insisted Matt change it, saying it was “just silly.” Ragnar Kjartansson will be forever grateful.
