riffs on Kafka's Metamorphosis among other
things.

"Gregor had a shock as he heard his own voice
answering... unmistakably his own voice, it was true,
but with a persistent horrible twittering squeak behind
it like an undertone, which left the words in their
clear shape only for the first moment and then rose up
reverberating around them to destroy their sense..."

The persistent horrible twittering squeak of our voices
it is.
