The Spinanes' duo music always took a back seat to Gates's breathy yet powerful vocals and her bitter lyrics. It's no wonder then that the most lyrically effective songs are the most musically low-key. "Heisman Stance" closes the album with a simple acoustic guitar and lyrics not far removed from Gates's characteristic themes. "Locked in a Heisman stance/And I don't trust a thing/Why don't you prove me wrong?" she sings, in a hushed, silky voice, offering a refreshing hint of hope in contrast to her standard fatalistic take on men.
