Just a little reminder of all the what abouts
And all the might have
Could have beens, another day, some other way

    This is a truly and hauntingly beautiful track. So surreal.

    This shit is absolute whacked out, demented, tormented, twisted genius - 'The clouds will part and the sky cracks open and God himself will reach his fucking arm through just to push you down, just to hold you down' fucking lol at that line, it's just dark, profound perfection.

    "And God himself will reach his fucking arm through just to push you down, just to hold you down" And later came Year Zero.

    The clouds will part , and the sky cracks open, and God himself will reach his fucking arm through. Just to push you down. Just to hold you down.

    I thought the quality would be better if I put in my actual CD and played it, but it turns out the quality is still sub-par. The Fragile really needs to be re-released on vinyl!

    It didn't turn out the way you wanted it to . It didn't turn out the way you wanted it, did it?

    @mattbowden1981: That part kind of reminds me of the NIN album Still. In particular "And All That Could Have Been" and "The Becomng (Still)"
