    General CommentIs it just me or does the line where he's saying "And suddenly i got this funny feeling" sound like it came from The Wonder Years? Great song.

    General CommentThis song is just so chilling, and amazing. It's a wonderful ending to a fantastic album.(even thought I got the Best Buy edition with 3 extra tracks)

    General CommentThis song is about LIF! Nothing matters....nothing....ever.

    I look at this song the way Erik described the album in general...."A Natural Death is about the futility and arrogance of creation and destruction, the overwhelming scale of space and time, and the brutal majesty of nature, the horror of birth and the beauty of death. Everyone who will ever live will die a natural death, and will soon after be forgotten for eternity. Hopefully this album will serve as a warning to the human race to stop taking itself so seriously, as we have seen the dire consequences of its actions in the future....you are nothing."

    I also really like how the man's voice in the song is explaining how he got a "funny feeling" and realized what he had been worrying about was really no big deal at all. I take it he realized what Eric was talking about.

    General CommentAt night, turn off every light outside and any light inside that you could possibly see from the outside, smoke a j or blunt, and listen to both "I Think We Both Suffer From the Same Crushing Metaphysical Crisis" and "Lif".

    I dare you to tell me it's not an experience.

    General Commentin fact...after enjoying some christmas purple nurple and playing this song again (i actually started with i think we are both and let it lead in) i found somethin...it's cool because, somewhat like the black hole at the end of the mechanical hand, you can catch references to each song throughout this song, i think actually counting backwards in order (listen for the girl crying, sounds of the beach, the bear, etc and not in that order what so ever) and it eventually ends with the howling winds that open hyperborea. so really a natural death can be played in a continuous loop...which is an entertaining take on immortality or the soul or the continuing cycle of life or death or something i think

    General Commenti'm just throwing this out there, but Nathan said that "the reason they spelled it 'Lif' is because life is never complete.
