Officer, Please is a persecution-song. The persecution-song type includes all songs in which a power alienates or oppresses the protagonist. We wanted to write a song in response to the text of Leonard Cohen's The Partisan, one that plays with the situation of the woman who gave shelter. We took the liberty of changing the narrator to someone more like us.

In my opinion, Jennifer's strings arrangement on "Officer, Please" makes this the best song we've done together so far.
As always, thank you for listening.
