Are we sure it's not 'road to find' instead of 'war to fight', considering the track is titled 'Roads'?

Love this damn sound...i feel like she leaves a little piece of herself everytime she sings it.. so heartfelt i think

I rate Roads up there with Glory Box & Its a Fire as the best songs from Portishead. If you like this music buy the Dummy LP.

Just like Americans to clap at any and every opportunity they get...

not only the clapping, but the premature ejaculation of cheering at the end really irks me as well.

Best listened to with ear buds on at a comfortably loud volume while walking on a Maui beach at sunset after partaking in earths medicine. I know cause I have done just that....simp l y mind blowing.

Sounds like she's almost in pain singing it, huh?
The video is no different. Her expression.. . I welled up.

There are indeed people who will clap to anything, and people who refuse to move to an obvious groove. Sometimes it's all you can do to hold your tongue, but remember that we're all individuals with our own perceptions and interpretati o n s . However, THOSE people...the y should have been checked at the door.
