    General CommentIn general, before I knew there was a theme or story to the album, this song made me think of some kind of intense, heavy decision or a traumatic event that changes you or the way you see the world from there on out - suicide, murder, abortion, child birth, rape.

    It did also make me think a specific event: A few days before buying "Oceanic" I was watching a clip from one of Henry Rollins' spoken words shows on YouTube. In this clip he talks about, in excruciating detail, about witnessing his friend Joe Cole's murder. How he made it through that show without breaking down crying is beyond me. (youtube.com/…)

    General CommentThe build up on this song is immense. I absolutely love this girls voice, it's very pretty and fits so well, even mixed beneath the instruments.

    General CommentI completly agree. Amazing as the slow hard drumming increases then around the 3.17 mark is backed up by the ghostly vocals and guitar. Truly awsome song from a great band. I was wondering however, who is the singer on this song?

    General CommentYep, Maria Christopher of the band: "27"
    I love her voice.

    This song reminds me of Tool's "Disposition" because so little is said, yet those few words have such immense power and beauty behind them. It's just overwheming, Gorgeous.
