Opening track of The Twilight Sad's second album Forget The Night Ahead. It premiered as a free download on May 2009.

The song was one of the last songs to be written for the album. They describe it as a "more sparse sound than what was on the first album". The title was taken from "Notes Toward a Mental Breakdown", a chapter of the 1970 novel The Atrocity Exhibition by J. G. Ballard.

    My favorite song on the album by far. I love when the heavy noise comes in toward the end.

    Songs like this restore the faith of an old cynic like myself. I get the same sort of feeling on listening to this as I did when I first heard 'Atmosphere' by Joy Division - and that was nearly 30 years ago! Great song by one of todays best bands.

    Hadn't heard these guys until just now, hopefully the rest of the album lives up to this song...

    The way this song gets heavy towards the end it's umuhzeen. It gets you all paranoid and thinking "oh, what is going to happen to me now?" and then it goes.... waaaaaaaaaaaaaaah. Sudden death to you. There's a feeling of... emptiness.
