    General Comment:Also would like to add that the song title is a reference to Jornada Del Muerto, a desert in New Mexico where the first atomic bomb testing was held. The lyrics are in Japanese to comply with the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

    Another hidden little tid-bit fact that has to do with the concept.

    My Interpretation:Someone should put the romaji up
    It is: mochi agete, tokihanashite

    If you do translate it, the literal translations are: mochi - hold, agete - all, tokihanashite - release.
    Now i know it is 'lift me up, let me go' but the best aspect of a concept album, let alone music, is that we can perceive them any way we wish.
    So my interpretation is that we have everything as a well functioning civilisation, but we're letting it go and compromising them by conflict.

    Just putting it out there, the interlude is just mesmerising. I can listen to it for days. Definitely one of my favourties in the album.

    General Comment:yes, i agree with you guys and i want to add that it's one of the 6 songs in a thousand suns album which are little and are used just to make an atmosphere. that's why a thousand suns is a concept album.
