    So poetic. "'Toss me a cigarette I think there's one in the raincoat' ... 'We smoked the last one an hour ago' ... So I looked at the scenery she read her magazine, and the moon rose over an open field" Beautiful.

    I just wanted to share this amazing tribute by the great sister duo First Aid Kit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pa3xOakbGTo - notice Paul Simon sitting in the audience. His reaction says it all, really.

    @ IHoldVertigo - doesn't it turn ironic by the end, as everyone is lost and sick and doesn't know why, they've all come to look for America and the America of the Dream doesn't exist, like the sweetness of the opening verses it's too good to be true? S&G were surprisingly political!

    seems to me to be a song about how exciting and overwhelming the American Dream is
