"Peter is a song about the russian czar, Peter The Great. I found out about this story of him while we were tracking the record, uh, and I was just fascinated by it and I continued to read more and more on it, so I told Kevin I wanted to write a song that was kinda going back and forth. The story goes, that Peter found his wife cheating on him and took the lover of his wife, Katherine and chopped his head off and then put the head kind of in their foyer, and as a punishment to Katherine, forced her to spend time with it every day. If she loved him so much, you know, she should be around him all the time. And so I wrote this song and naturally I thought it was a beautiful love song and uh, so I wrote from the perspective of Peter and then from the perspective of the head and they’re kind of having a back and forth conversation with Katherine."

Pytor is the best song ever written.
