    General CommentThis song is fuckin´awesome, you can feel the music surrounding your head, like spinning. Colors, noises, energy... then it goes silent and dies. I love Mr. Reznor´s instrumental songs. It´s all in your imagination

    General CommentThis intsrumental sounds a lot like "We're in the together".

    I guess it's about the complication that comes after forming relationships... hence "we're in this together now"

    General Commentlol... sooory had a few typos in that last post... bring drunk sucks.

    This is what I meant to say:

    This instrumental sounds a lot like the song "We're in this together" which is also off the fragile.

    I think he's talking about the complication that arrives after forming realtionships.

    In other words, you can say "Nothing can stop us now" all you want, but you suddenly arrive at "Complication". Pure genius.

    General CommentI love how this song, throughout, sounds to me like something you'd hear in a Final Fantasy game. especially in the beginning.. and including when he starts screaming and screaming. it sounds very airy and digital at the same time to me. quite nice.

    now as for what the song means.. well.. I get the impression, from the music, that it's.. "la de da.. another nice day.." and then when he starts screaming, it's.. "oh crap. snags everywhere. help!"

    General CommentThe majority is very complex sounding, like various emotions and ideas constantly competing until the end when they seem to snag together and die down. The end always feels kind of sad to me, like these things are trying to get back up smoothly, but fall away again.

    General Commentwow... i'm not the only person who thinks of video games when i hear this song. hahaha.

    on the lines of a meaning, i don't know. i'm pretty sure the whole album of the fragile is about drugs.

    being high.
    coming down at the end.
    that's a complication.

    and it blends really good into the begining "please", which i conclude is about never wanting to come down from a high. but i guess i should talk about that in the "please" thread.
