    General CommentDUDE...I WAS LISTENING TO THE STUDIO VERSION TONIGHT AND AT THE VERY END (LAST 30 Seconds) TRENTS VOICE COMES IN ALL MUFFLED HE SAYS:

    "Im Getting Closer.....Im Getting Closer.......Im Getting Closer........Im Getting Clsoer......Im Getting Closer......Im Getting Closer All The Time"

    It's in a weird muffled voice and it sounds really creepy yet cool. It's best to play it on Windows Media Player and Turn you Speakers all the way up. It starts at about/around 4:40.

    Man the things you find new in the Fragile when you play it loud are amazing.

    General CommentAnyone ever see "Man on Fire"? This was perfect in that movie, in the way that character acted and felt.

    General CommentI love when just the guitar is playing and then all of a sudden, the drums and heavy guitar come in hard together. Bliss

    General CommentTHis song`s music is sad and seems to be played in the middle of nowhere, after all, it´s about things you can´t erase.:(

    General CommentEasily my favorite instrumental of trents. The strings in it add so much character. Especially when he's just coming out of one of the heavier guitar/drum sections. It's soothing.

    If you're into puffing, get really baked, to the point where you just can't think anymore, turn your stereo volume all the way up, boost the bass and let trent blow you away :)

    General CommentThe voice you hear at the end of the song is actually the beginning of the song 10 MIles High. On the vinyl version of the album, 10 Miles High does come after The Mark Has Been Made. Why Trent put a little sneak peak of the song on the CD version of The Fragile is a mystery to me.
