Corneas misted (psst psst psst psst)
color high (psst psst psst)
Motionless
(psst psst psst psst)
for seconds at a time

A hand that is cold in another colder
(psst psst psst)
And everything (psst psst psst psst)
within reach

This is a waltz for a dodo a samba for Bambi Gavotte for the Kaiser Bolero for Beuys a reel for Red Rosa a polka for Tintin

corneas misted (psst psst psst)
color high (psst psst psst psst)
Motionless
(psst psst psst psst)
for seconds at a time
one hand that is cold in another colder (psst psst psst)

and everything
within reach

    General CommentIf it wasn't for this song as an ending, I don't think I'd be able to return to peace after hearing the album. Amazing ending to an amazingly frightening album.

    General Commentthere are a few moments on "the drift" where i am really glad that walker made a certain decision - where you would possibly expect the music to do a certain thing: a triumphant finale, a crescendo, a repeat - and it doesn't do it and is all the better for it. ending with this muted, haunting song might leave you with a strange view of the album but i'm glad it ends this way... it just makes the album as a whole more compelling.

    General CommentCreep & Paranoid

    Props to anyone who's heard this Album. It's a changeling listen to make it all the way through.

    Congrats on making it past the Duck from Hell. A lot of good track for Halloween.
