"Foreign Window" is a song concerned with dealing with some sort of self imposed therapy and having to go on no matter what. Brian Hinton remarks, "There is a grace and majesty here which Van have experienced from little else in rock music."
The mysterious “Foreign Window” is one of those complex and often misunderstood tracks, it speaks of a spiritual journey, of striving for self actualization and name checks the likes of Lord Byron and french poet Arthur Rimbaud. The song has been covered live by Dylan on numerous occasions.
