    General CommentI was amazed that no one posted a response to this song. The simplest of words can be so powerful.

    General CommentThis song was about Gabriel's experience at the Rothko Chapel in Houston, TX.

    That place is horribly dull and lifeless though, so I'm really not sure where he pulled inspiration from.
