    General CommentAs far as I know, this song seems to be something of a phone-in, as it was done for the Six Feet Under soundtrack. I may be wrong, and it may have only been used as ambiance music during the show, which would explain the lack of lyrics and simplicity of the music involved. All in all, I don't like this song very much.

    General CommentIt's deliberately ironic. It's called Direction, and yet the song seems to wander aimlessly for some time prior to when it begins to build up. But then, before it reaches the climax it's heading for, it simply drifts away.

    General CommentI digress... I think that this is Interpol showing how awesome they are. The song effectively has no lyrics (the only words, repeated over & over, are just as much an ambient part of the song as the instruments), but the musicianship is great. The song is gentle and sorrowful, but gets forceful toward the end like it's gaining a sense of being and builds to a climax that is only fleeting. It seems like it could be a song about death... the one direction we're all heading in.

    General CommentSo I have this other song which I thought was titled Direction but isn't, and is definitely Interpol.
    But the lyrics are completely different, and I can't find them online anywhere.
    Which is really weird.
    Doesn't anyone else know a song that starts with "Nice teeth, great hair/I wish I could take you from here, Actually/We could sit on that/We really need to find that chair.
    It's a lot longer, about 1:50 in length.
