Such a beautiful picking part and what amazing lyrics. I still have no idea what's actually being said because I just can't get past the melody and the atmosphere. "And I won't let you choke on the noose around your neck." This album (but this song in particular) changes so radically throughout that it's hard not to continuously get sucked in.

I'm always hesitant to spotlight the singles of the album because they're the obvious picks. Sometimes those songs are just so big, so full, and they make themselves impossible to ignore. The chorus creates the best moments on this album (save from 'Dust Bowl Dance's "Go out back and get my gun") and the verse isn't far behind. It's the undisputed best track on the record. Musically it's unlike anything else I've ever heard and lyrically it's nothing short of stellar.
All in all, it continues to blow my mind grapes every time I listen to it. I've caught myself saying "There's not a bad track on the album" Which is incorrect. There's not one good track on the album - everything is great or better. This record delivers on each and every track. The song writing is phenomenal.
