    General CommentThis song captures the awed acquiescence I have felt when faced with a massive and uncaring nature. There is an implacable joy in that acceptance that borders on the spiritual, a realization that despite the scale of our consciousness and the resistance of our egos, we are just another component in a cycle of birth, death, and rebirth that has gone on for millennia and will go on for millennia, and I think that's what is being communicated in this song, and not just lyrically: The massive riff repeated by the guitars and the glacial pace of the drums seem to embody the valley beneath the huge sky, the "mountains that move themselves," the trees growing inexorably higher. Few songs by any band have lyrical and musical themes that seem so perfectly in sync as this ones' do.
