    The Bass is very nice.

    This has never been one of my favorite Okkervil River songs, but I love the Daytrotter version

    parts of this song remind me a lot of Red House Painters "Lord Kill the Pain." idk if anyone can hear it...

    This is disappointing for an Okkervil song. I mean, it's not bad, but I don't think it holds water against many of their other songs.

    @ cheesesandwich: I never noticed the similarity of Okkervil's sound to the Long Winters! wow, tres cool! no wonder.

    I enjoy it as well. Not the best, but a solid song and I really like the title.

    this song makes no sense to me. the rest of the album is really good but this one just doesn't seem like great writing to me. anyone else feel that way?
