The title "Deep Below Heaven" comes from a short story in Sam Shepard's "Motel Chronicles" about a man in a motorcycle accident. As he falls from his Kawasaki he has the sense "of being deep below heaven. The wetness of flesh. Metal ripping. People helplessly apart."

To me it evoked the idea of us humans swarming the earth with all our love and sadness, our desires and defeats. I like to think of the record as a book of short stories, myself and each of the characters struggling in our own universe but united in that struggle, deep below heaven, far from grace, reaching for something.
