Riddle of life，Will I see？What do I know？And how do I go？Tame what？Tame what？Tired of what？Where do I go？ 濒死体验，病入膏肓，Trip-Hop的节奏简直是回光返照的最后一搏啊，摇晃扭动着，阴森的音乐背景中回顾自己生平，发出种种控诉呼喊和疑问，带着不平静的情绪追忆生命的线索仰问苍天。最后吹起的几声大号好骇人，也让人心里如死亡的平静。
Oh, i forgot to talk about the echoing sound at the end, from 4:09 to 4:40, between each verse. It sounds like some kind of cry for help, and it goes so well with Beth's voice because she's becoming more powerful at this moment, more convinced and angry, just like she was desperately steamrolling again on that person crying for help. There's some kind of battle in that special part of the song. This sounds like she was fighting with herself.
This song is one of the heaviest i've ever heard. Everytime the chorus comes, i feel so oppressed. The drums on this song trample on me like a steamroller. I feel like i'm being strangled and suffocating. Every sound is so bleak, desperate, dark. No, not dark — BLACK, because dark sounds too light to qualify this song. Yes, everytime i hear this song, in my head, i don't picture just a dark mood, i picture TOTAL BLACKNESS. Absolutely no light, not any shadow, just a complete heavy steamrolling black.
Even Beth's voice is like a steamroller. When i hear her singing on this song I picture someone stuck on the ground trying to get up, failing everytime. You know, just like that scene from Melancholia's prologue where Justine is trying to walk but there is something that blocks her legs.
In Threads, each sound is a hit made to put you to the ground, without allowing you to get up. This is a masterpiece.
scary. Love the "space" in this song though....you can really hear everything. They do so much so well in this entire album, and this song kinda epitomizes it all...and then the ending is so ominous and awesome.
