Sister Machine Gun band name inspiration - Tiananmen SquareThe number refers to the peaceful and resigned opposition on the Square of Heavenly Peace in Beijing (China), the massacre at My Lai and in Vietnam and the shooting on the Kent State University campus in the United States.

A quote from the number in question:

'All good people are asleep and dreaming
And be known one by one
They'll be coming down
Altogether sister machine gun
Automatic high what a ride
What a trip tripped over the candlestick.'
