    Last one out of Liberty City burn it to the ground

    Any other David Lynch fans recognize the Inland Empire homage in the whole beginning scene of this?

    I love this band but I think his voice sounds too whiny most of the time for them to blow up on a mainstream level. If they are going to make the jump to the next level with this record, this is the song that's going to make it happen.

    The best song on the album, hands down

    I'll write you into all of my songs Supporter

    That drop into the second verse always hits like a ton of bricks. They'll need to make the song a bit shorter for radio tho

    Great video, great song. This album was totally under the radar for me until the 2016 lists.

    Love this song, been listening to it a lot lately. The album as a whole has grown on me a lot.

    Also, this band consistently have some of the best cinematography in their videos.

    I want to get into this band, but it is really hard to after the singer made those xenophobic comments the other week.

    During an interview he advocated that older people shouldn't be allowed to vote because they didn't vote the way he would have.

    I can feel the butterflies.

    Best song off the album!!

    With all due respect, given the fact that he did complain about older people not being allowed to vote, as the below user brought up, I think you might be misinterpreting what he said. Now saying older people shouldn't vote is a really stupid thing to say, but that doesn't keep me from loving this band more than any other.
  20. selfreliable


    He advocated that people who dont think like him should lose their basic right to vote. It is a birth given right, and to say because people are old they dont know what is best for a country and should lose that right is sickening. Free countries are built on the idea that you have the ability to vote on the changes you want in your country and not be held back by some dictator telling you what to do. To then say old people should lose that right simply because they didnt align to your personal views is horrible and hateful.

    None of this is what the word "xenophobic" means.
  22. Bryan Diem


    I completely agree. It's selfish and evil. Nothing about it is xenophobic.
  23. selfreliable


    Xenophobia is a fear/hatred of those who are foreign, strange, or different than you.

    We know it from the silence

    LOL this thread can't be for real though. This song is too good, just as is the rest of the album.
