Eureka finds Jim O'Rourke blending many styles together, something that is important to know. There's jangle pop, folk, relaxing jazz, and an assortment of other more vague influences and whatnot. Thanks such diversity, Eureka rarely tires itself, getting all the rabbit action can handle. At just the right time, Eureka decides to start wrapping things up with the title track, an almost mournful and melancholic way to end the album, with that wonderful, gentle voice and crawling tempo. Geniunely sad, he sings "Youre thinking on your feet, While youre sitting there on your ass, Fresh crease in your shirts, No stain of sweat on your back, Theres no need, Theres an employee, To make up for all of your slack A seed dont make a tree, Without a servant who waters the grass.
