(1) in a 2005 interview, Bob Weir said:
"Esau's another one like Heaven Help the Fool. The lyric is too damned opaque it bothers me. I know what I'm singing about, but I'm not sure that the lyric gets that across. Barlow had to explain it to me. He shouldn't. When he was writing, I was there in the room; I mean we both wrote lyrics to it. But that's something I've got to work out with Barlow. And if it's too obtuse, unless I really really love it and don't mind it being obtuse, I'm going to have to stand my ground and say we've got to define this a little better."
Bob Weir re-introduced it (with a rewritten bridge) in 2012, playing it with members of The National in the Bridge Sessions and in solo sets with Bruce Hornsby.
