This is my favourite song ever. Glen's haunting vocals and the sparse instrumentals are stunning. The final guitar phrase at the finish of the song is breath-taking.

Glen is very proud to have written this song before the fall of Enron.

THis is the best song on the cd.  Nothing more said, lyrics, tone, everything perfect.  That's a lot to say, considering the quality of the CD (I LOVE IT)!

This song was an early song of his that was probably written around the break-up of Toad.  I think that it is most likely his strongest lyrical work on the Album, as here he displays his magicaly metaphoric descriptions.  The music is very pretty with a tint of pain or sorrow.  

It is no doubt that the focus of Abulum was on his voice, and he manages to leave you wondering if you've ever heard anything so poor.  His voice is the most important part of the new album as it gives life to his songs and demands your attention.

But this is just my humble opinion and i don't claim that i know everything, or anything for that much.
