    I love this song, but I'm not sure how to feel about that Raggle Taggle Gypsy break.

    "The Decemberists never have a dud." It's so true isn't it. This isn't one of the songs that comes to mind when I think of my favourite songs of theirs, but it's leagues ahead of what 95% of bands out there can do on their best day.

    Good song


Get the rox in the box, get the water right down to your socks
This bulkhead's built of fallen brethren bones
We all do what we can, we endure our fellow man
And we sing our songs to the head frames creaks and moans

The Decemberists - Rox In The Box Lyrics
