Lost myself in you today
Lost myself in every way

I see your love in all you do
I see myself in you
the story goes on and on

Here in the woods, now my friends
See you there hang a ribbon on a branch
Feel my feet on the soil
Free of trouble free from it all


Feel the air under your feet
(?)...all of me
First steps you take,best thing you make
never alone always awake
key to a bridge, open the door
so many more before

Here in the woods, now my friends
See you there hang a ribbon on a branch
feel my feet on the soil
free of trouble free from it all

Since this comment, I have heard Popeye every single time, and it somehow makes the song MORE powerful and moving.  I picture a music video with Popeye just... free from it all.
What , WHAT ..is R.P going to continue to Grace my palate and turn me on to even more great music and artists!
8+ here !

Thank you Radio Paradise
ah, all the pixies down my back garden are bopping about to this one.

Porcupine Tree vs Younger Brother. And it's Porcupine Tree in an amazing 1st round TKO!

 
My score card reads Younger Brother with the TKO. To each his own but that's why we all love RP....

slight ripoff (or tip of the hat, to be more positive) of led zeppelin, though which zep song is escaping me
 
The intro sounds a bit like That's The Way.  Just noticed it was played 2 songs earlier today, you might be on to something.

Love this kind of dreamy trippy stuff. Good music for creating art :)
love these guys; thanks again RP!
Just don't think about Neil Young's Old Man as you listen to the intro ;)
Likes me some Younger Brother.

It's not a melody; it's a Dm9 chord played with an arpeggio.  Both songs' chord progressions vary dramatically after that first chord.  If anything, it's more of a "nod" than an act of "stealing".

 
Arpeggio:  

A broken chord is a chord broken into a sequence of notes. A broken chord may repeat some of the notes from the chord and span one or more octaves.

An arpeggio (Italian: ) is a type of broken chord, in which the notes that compose a chord are played or sung in a rising or descending order. An arpeggio may also span more than one octave.

Tie a yellow ribbon 'round the old...oops wrong song!
I'd forgotten how good this song is!
What is up with the minions talking(singing) very quickly on this song?
sheer beauty, makes me happy immediately. The whole album is a trip to heaven..
"Calgon, take me away...."
Thanks for introducing me to this great band!
 As a younger brother, i too, know how to steal in a respectful way. Excellent song, btw.

Big, but quiet & elegant, YES for Younger Brother.

 
YES!  That's what I was thinking...after the intro which sounds like it's Low-Fi...and then a really nice chill groove till the Popeye part...and then groove again till the end.  It's an 8 from me. 

PS - between you and WonderLizard, whenever I see your comments I think it's mine for second.  LizK could be my nickname's nickname!


Why do I ever read lyrics? It's such a self-defeating endeavor. When just listening to this song, I always thought it was so deep and heavy and moody and great and all. Come to find out it's about hair bows.

Never read the lyrics!

True, they fall to the left, not the right.  You'll have to bring it up with Storm Thorgerson; oh, wait, he died.

That'll be because it was designed by Storm Thorgerson
 
I thought it looked familiar. {#High-five}

Thei get a 9 from me. I have to hear it several times. May be a 10 soon

Ergo: They both get rated a 2 or lower. This is unlistenable.

at least it's not that Peter Frampton thing
This song rocks.  It gets me through heavy traffic in a very controlled manner.  Can't explain it.  It just does.
I have the Vaccine CD and it is excellent.  How is this CD — The Last Days of Gravity?

I'm thinking the same.
"I really like that. Damn, not Younger Brother again."

Same thing I thought with Poe and Elbow. Bill & Rebecca steer me in the right direction. 
Thank you, Captain, I find it highly Floydian and in fact quite stimulating...

 Trulykenyan,

Cannot ex-pats adopt Kenya as a new home?  Or are you marketing black market items with nicknames?  Curious.

Great music BTW.  Would sound terrific in just about any corner of Kenya (that is not too close to Somalia).



 
Are you a little bit idiot or are you trying to be ironic? What's the problem with Kenya or with Trulykenyan's comment?

Like this a lot. It has a Pucifer/Perfect Circle kind of vibe to it.

I think lots of people channel Floyd, but these guys actually got Storm for the album cover.     Why are there so few references to vaccine in the net?


Awesome track!

I like YB, but why always the same song from the same album at RP ?

 
Coz it's a good song, and perhaps other tracks on the same album aren't so good?

It happens you know.
Relief at last. 
I like YB, but why always the same song from the same album at RP ? Please select something different !

Sorry to hear that you're dying ,old, boring, and depressed.
Listening to RP should be helping to alleviate those symptoms, or, at least, make them easier to cope with.
The more I hear from this group, the more I like them.


Accidently turned up the volume as there was no sound when the feed started and those DRUMS! were a great start to my Paradiso session.

Apart from the tinnitus, that is.

I'm none of what you are describing above and I love this kind of "haunting" music, the voice, the rhythm, it's appeasing and yet there is so much strength and energy in it ! To me this song sounds a bit like Archive :)

Maybe, but it's also a good one for us old listeners that are happy, coherent, and living a life that embarrasses our grown children.

Love this tune - how is the rest of the album...? Reaching out again - it seems no one is familiar with whole thing?

 
I think this and 'Happy Pills' are the most 'accessible' tunes on the CD. The rest is a bit more eclectic.

' All I Want' strikes me as a Pink Floyd tribute - which I think is a good thing.

Psychic Gibbon is good and not too 'weird'.

The rest is more electronic and may take some getting used to if you are not into that genre.

I'm an old geezer and I like the whole album - These guys make some good music!



 
At first I thought it was Porcupine Tree. Decent tune tho'.

Picked up the album after all...very enjoyable.  This is a bit of a unique track in that it is a very cohesive tune, much of the album is more ambient electronica, for anyone curious. 

 
Agree. This is the standout tune - awesome.
