And the time that I will suffer less

This music just makes you sit there and listen. No matter what kind of chaos is going on around you. It's incredible.

The line, "wandering stars for whom it is preserved... " is not anthropomorp h i z i n g the star. The star has no human qualities. These stars are consigned to wander the darkness, which is true. The move through the blackness of space.

Sure the meaning is elusive...bu t it eluded you a little too much.

Great song ,... But the narrative about wandering stars for whom it is reserved,the blackness the darkness forever is somewhat ,..anthropom o r p h i c . S t a r s do not fear or lament the darkness of space,only we as sentient beings feel a sense of deep isolation and being alone .but I digress ,...it's still a touching song full of existential angst !!

Portishead was introduced to me in 2002.It remains a wonder how they escaped my radar when I had just started my foray into trip-hop with sneaker pimps.No regrets though.

Jon the band that covered this was called Level, the vocalist of that band is also the new(er) vocalist in Adema.

Yeah, they're awesome...bu t it really took 10 people to write this song?

That voice is SO hypnotic. Perfect blend with the melody. These people are SUPREMELY talented.
