Don't let the world bring you down, not everyone here is that fucked up and cold <3 how could this band have passed me by up until just last year... oh yeah... they're not British! (never hear of Incubus here). We're stuck with Oasis, Coldplay and Snow Patrol. :/ Lapped up by those under a democratic pretence.
the "whale" sounds just don't compare to those in 'Drown' by smashing pumpkins, more like those are killer whale sounds, heh! like the meaning in this song, there is warmth to be found in this cold world.
i was so stoned the first time i heard this, back in like 2006 when i was 16. my friend was playing the cd in his car and we were driving around doing doughnuts in the snow. and this song came on and it just hit me so hard. everyone in the car was just quiet and listening. it was the reason i got really into incubus and it's been one of my favorite songs since. <3
