    In my opinion, the combo ending of this and bankrupt on selling is one of the most beautiful things created....

    naotas_forehead I agree. the only lyrics that come close are randy described enternity by built to spill. I think these one's win though. However I've never seen them as sad, it seems to me that it's just an athiest dying and being pleasantly suprised that there is a heaven.

    I read the lyrics to this song once and they destroyed me. Seeing the words without the music made me realize how fucking sad they are. Even the part at the end where he says "It's not day, and it's not night, but it's all nice on ice alright" is sad, because it makes me think he's trapped in a sort of nothingness for all eternity. This song has the best lyrics I've ever heard, and I'm not saying that lightly. I mean it.
