    This is such a brilliantly-crafted song; it's sublime. My favorite on the album. [2] Such a great song, it has a melancholy feel to it.

    Surely somewhere within one of their best songs in quite a bloody impressive catalogue. "They all run together and never make sense but that's how we like it, that's what we want." <3

    the actual astronauts bit is really annoying but the rest of the song is so good. goddamn it i suffer through each twee reiteration in order to get that sweet 'take all your reasons' bit

    such a good song. initially it didn't click with me, but i just realized recently how great the lyrics are. You know you have a permanent piece of my medium sized american heart
