The group said of the track:

‘Cat’s Cradle’ gives you a look at the more dynamic and rhythmically inventive side of the album. Overall, it’s a dense, heavy track that lets everyone in the band stretch out and show off a little bit. As many people would probably guess, the title is a reference to Kurt Vonnegut’s 1963 novel. The lyrics attempt to engage with what that book had to say about humanity’s most destructive tendencies and the way we paper over that horror with flimsy, arbitrary belief systems. We live in a dangerous moment of high tensions around the world and political rhetoric that’s increasingly unhinged from reality or compassion. Meanwhile, the weapons that inspired Vonnegut to imagine his version of the apocalypse have not gone away. It’s two minutes to midnight on the Doomsday Clock, and no matter how much you stare at the strings you’re not going to see any cat or any cradle.”
