Truly amazing song. One of the things that really astounds me about Thrice is how Dustin can turn religious teachings and Bible passages into incredibly moving songs. They're never preachy, the goal is never to give the listener a Sunday school lesson - but their music forces the listener to mirror the emotions of the speaker, and bring out this incredible catharsis in doing so. Listen to this song, and really pay attention to the lyrics - you'll feel almost totally drained by the end of it.
I can't even imagine what it'd be like live.
I enjoy this Thrice album a lot more than their other albums. I really prefer the more raw approach here. This song in particular sounds extremely heavy. Not because there's walls of distorted guitars everywhere, but because of more natural sounding guitars and drums that really attack when being pounded on. Awesome stuff.
