    Thank you a million times for this Matt. This song has often moved me to tears, and that's the way music should touch you, and if it doesn't, you're listening to the wrong stufff.....

    "Sh*t?" Oh, you mean "Shit." Let it out, say "Shiiiiiiit." And yes, this is fantastic.

    "Save Me, from mysel". "Why can't love ever touch my heart, like fear does"...... Damn, just sit back and think about these lyrics..... Is there anyone out there today that writes sh*t like this anymore? I don't think so, this stuff is from the heart, not from some hit making factory that puts out sh*t song after sh*t song for the masses.... You're not going to hear stuff like this at the Katy Perry concert kids!!

    Damn, lyrics like this are simply awe inspiring... Some of the best lines ever written have come from Matt Johnson.

    This is the best TheThe song ever written! Beautiful in a haunting way.

    One of the most incredibly poignant and touching songs I've ever heard. This is one of the songs that really has touched me to the core of my soul. I've felten felt this song is about me, because I can relate to it as much as anything I've ever heard. "Why can't love, ever touch my heart, as fear does" I don't know too many lines from any songs that hit you in the same way that this one does. Very powerful stuff from Matt.

    Such an under-rated band. Classic. Wish he'd perform more.

    Such an under appreciated album. What's better than Matt Johnson and Johnny Marr? Ok, maybe Morrisseey and Marr, but still...Mind Bomb was my first exposure to The The and I remember anxiously awaiting the release of this album. This song in particular strikes a chord.
