I can't remember the likes of weather this cold
but it was one year ago when the trees caught on fire
and the sun just expired
I know this in fact, still I'm a stranger to the act
It's the pain of childbirth
We can't keep up with this earth
We've all traveled it around
but it seems like a first-time sound
each time my senses are burned
relearn this twenty-third turn
When you can't memorize the feeling
the circle keeps it here for thee

    General CommentOne of the greatest. The way the broken chords seem as if they are struggling to emerge from the guitar recalls the 5th line reference to "the pain of childbirth." I would love to know if there is any significance to the term "twenty-third turn" of if it's simply a random number that refers to our ever-repeating revolutions on "the wheel of human suffering."
