    That is how you end a song. Feels like maybe music was right for once.

    Christ, i can't believe people have the audacity to bash this song. This has basically been my theme song for the longest time now.

    Someone give this man a tree to hug. The best thing I can say about this song (it's boring) is that at its best it sounds like flaming lips at their worst.

    for those of us who are waiting for something that makes waiting worth the wait, the immense disassembly at the end is all we have. the dull dank grey beginning is the numbing piece of time before that eventual wait is over.

    Aw, c'mon, people. Sure, the beginning is kind of dull, but the solo at the end makes up for it big time, in my opinion. It's fucking epic.

    yeah, I don't really like the echos on his voice too much, but I think it's a great song. Lyrics, guitars, nice pseudo-jam. It's got it all.

    Definitely my least favorite on the album but decent I guess.

    Hmm, feels like the supersonics match the music nicely. One of the two best tunes on the album.
