"Exchange" as written by Mort Garson and Bob Hilliard....
Yeah yeah yeah ah
You see a man's face
But you don't see his heart
You see a man's face
But you will never know his thoughts

Everywhere you go
There's a man to say love
Never neither never neither
Take it to heart

For your heart is your heart
And your thoughts is your thoughts
Never mix love with hatred

You see a man's face
You will never see his heart
You see a man's face
But you will never know his thoughts
You see a man's face
You will never know his thoughts
You see a man's face

    General Commenti agree with TREXOR that the song sums up the album, but also, the first instrumental version of exchange was after the song "Inertia Creeps" which is apparently a song about how someone stays in a relationship because of the sex, and the instrumental exchange I believe is about the climax from having sex with that relationship in mind. Perhaps it's showing the circular motion of problems, how if we relax, and just say that it's all ok, it can cause other problems and damage our own lives.

    General CommentI've always thought the double placement was intended as an intermission from the darker, brooding, sinister songs it borders.

    General CommentCan anyone tell me why this song is on Mezzanine? Twice? It's not atrocious, just comically out of place. If the rest of the album is the sound of modern people collapsing in on themselves, maybe Exchange is the pretty dream that keeps them from totally losing their shit.
