I love the tone of this song. It is a very complicated emotion of anger, confusion, failure and lack of control. The sound and the lyrics marry so well that the emotions really convey well and can get inside you. Its a great song when you are feel frustrated because it can really get to the core of most frustration, at least in my world.
I love how the song builds and then climaxes with a nearly acoustic part and yet it sounds very powerful.
Modest Mouse has a great use of unusual sounds. And this one has the creepiest with the wheezey sound at the end. It almost gives me shivers considering the subject matter of the song.
The lyrics are amazing in how they are simple and complex all at the same time. I love songs that are almost like poems, full of meaning.
Some day you will die and somehow something’s going to steal your carbon
