    IMO the only better voice back in the time was probably Joan Baez.

    This is a great song, I think it should've been more widely heard, too bad it wasn't. But it may be found some day, I think it's timeless.

    Darkly smiling, there are no tickets, and you may pay, as you leave The man in black goes lurching through, and he doesn't even think of you Strain to feel the movement, and hear the music, and see the night The man in black goes lurching through, and doesn't even think of you What does it matter how far? The vacuum is leaving the jar My guess on the meaning is that it's about people with souls crushed by society, lurching through life but can't feel the beauty of it, and miss it all. So their smiles are always dark because they can't really feel pleasure. What does it matter how long they live on, there's nothing but an empty soul (vacuum) to leave the body (jar). A caustic criticism of straight society. On another level, this song may also be about making love in the dark to someone she no longer feels passion for, nor does he for her. So what does it matter how far the relationship goes, if it ends, it'd just be a vacuum leaving the jar (the relationship).
