    General CommentThis song is surreal, and actually rather creepy. While not necessarily a bad thing, I can see how it wouldn't suit a lot of tastes. I like it, albeit I could do without the long, drawn-out instrumental portion at the end. The guitar is actually a little too screechy. That part of the song could easily be cut in half or more...and if there was a version like that, I'd for sure download it to my iTunes. I do have this one. It runs 7 minutes and 14 seconds long!

    Anyway, onto the actual meaning: it's simple, isn't it? Hope Sandoval (lead singer) is simply speaking to someone she loves dearly; most likely her lover, as far as I can see. The only line that confuses me is, "You lost your chance." This, along with "Mary of Silence," appear to be streams of consciousness. I think that's all the lyrics are, hence why it sounds rambly to me. So it's rambling with an amazing beat and a drawn-out end. It grew on me, I must say - even though Hope talks and does not sing. It's a standout track on the album.

    General CommentUgh, I meant to compare STTIMS to Umbilical from Among My Swan, not to Mary of Silence. My mistake...

    General CommentThis is hands down the trippiest son I've ever heard. Up there with "Mary of Silence," "Umbilical," and "She Hangs Brightly," all by Mazzy Star. Oh, and "Glass + The Ghost Children," by Smashing Pumpkins, too.
