    General Commentthis is a very powerful song. what i love about it is that by not adding any lyrics, this song is not limited; it's unifying. even just in the sense that everyone can identify with the fact that they've experienced some things so bad that they are worth crying about.

    General CommentIt's weird to me how no one has commented on this song. It's one of Le Tigre's most emotional songs in my opinion. It's about taking a moment to think abotu all the bad things that have happened over the years, all the horrible things, and how no one does anything to help it. Later in the song it gets a little more eclectic, and I think it becomes about what we as a people have come forth to resolve, yet there is still an undertone that says "we need to keep on keeping on, because we still don't have what we need."

    General CommentI love this. Like tiny spirits said, is is quite clearly a song for you to cry for everything bad that's happened. Whatever it might be. You don't need to wait for a song with lyrics that you can relate to, because this can reach out and touch everyone. It's like a friend who will hold you while you cry, but without you having to explain why you're crying, because sometimes it's just nice not to. But what's more, it's about keeping on living. We can have that song to listen to when we need to, sob our heartsout to it, and then at the end we pick up along with the music itself and it passes, and you can go back t normal. Genius.

    General CommentI totally agree with the above comments.. The fact that it has no lyrics makes it so personal. Its like two and a half minutes of 'self-pity time' where you can just 'cry for everything bad that's ever happened'.. The way the music changes at the end is like it's telling you "c'mon pull yourself together now- we can get through this."
