But no, she’s just the entrée for the main serving of batshit where, in the first verse, Konstrakta sings, if that’s the right word, an informercial seemingly about the benefits of… well… health – or at least some Oil of OhMyGod that would cost you about 500 points a gallon. The second verse is about nothing in particular or, more precisely, her walking her dog but then she says “God grant us health since there’s no medical insurance for me. “

Or it’s none of these things and it’s a song with ambiguous lyrics like “American Pie” or, more likely, it’s just a piece of shit on a stick.
