"All You Deliver" as written by and Jose Gonzalez....
On the verge of ruin
You'll see it all clear
How steep the fall is
How long the way back is
On the verge of success
It's all white and fluffy
Horizons are blurred
By the time you reach your goal
Tongues will be twisted
To the point where you'll lose track of your soul
Distorted pictures is all you deliver

    General CommentThis is one of my favourites off his great album Veneer. To me, this song documents the way that we always see our lives subjectively. Jose sings about how when we are down (on the verge of ruin) we realise that we have strayed and need to refocus on getting back on track. On the other hand, when we have been successful it is easy to slip into complacency and become arrogant, losing 'track of our soul'.
    This song refers to the constant cycle of depression and elation that we as human beings undergo.

    General CommentIt's about how you can be blinded by something, focusing on only one side of things and forgetting about that can/will go wrong. "Distorted Pictures" seeing only the good things. I have to add, that I love his guitar playing on this song.

    General Commenti agree with aestheticx7. it's about how when you're down you only see the bad things and when you're good, you only see the good things. it's sooo true actually!

    i love his guitar on every song :)

    General Commenti think this song comes from both a good and bad place, but is the acceptance of the essence of life: without bad there could be no good. Now maybe im just not strong enough to describe how happy or sad this song can be but to me its more than just happy or sad its you vs the world and if you dont realize that then youre not going to get anywhere you want to go
