this is such a long song... it sounds the same for a good 5 mins straight. Really good though

...and then they went on to say that the pearly gates had some eloquent graffiti, like 'we'll meet again' and 'f*ck the man' and 'tell my mother not to worry' and angels, with their great handshakes.. . but always done in such a hurry.

one of the most well written songs, ever.

Are the lyrics tell my mother not to worry referencing Upward over the Mountain?
I would love it if he meant that on purpose.

Love this song. Such amazing musical style , it has no chorus and breaks all the rules of modern music. Love the picture it paints of crumbling romance and drug abuse. So sad.

These lyrics make so much sense to me, I can really relate and feel them. Once you paint the picture he paints with his lyrics you see what he's saying and then it hits you...what an amazing song writer.

I want to thank the person responsible for putting the music together for the movie "In Good Company" which is what introduced me to Sam Beam in the first place. It wasn't a bad movie - but the soundtrack was brilliant.

Did someone else cover this song, or at least part of it? The first three stanzas sounded really familiar.

Tell me this is not the greatest song ever created. That is, of course, if you enjoy being wrong.

Wow. I mean, this is some heavy stuff. Sam Beam does it again.

This song is so simple yet beautiful at the same time. Every time I listen to it I find myself in awe of Sam Beam's ability to write such captivating, touching, and peaceful music.

I agree...from the minute I heard this song, I was in love...it has been almost two years now, and it still has the ability to give me chills.
