    One of their best songs, IMO. By far the best song of the past decade.

    Re: Lying In The Hands Of God is absolutely beautiful...

    I have a question about some of the lyrics.

    Is it supposed to be "if you never flew, why would you?" or "if you never flew, why would you cut the wings off a butterfly?

    So basically, is the never flew separate from the butterfly part, or is that all one question?

    I believe it's asking "If you never flew.....Why would you cut the wings off a butterfly?"

    Why the fuck is Baby Blue so under appreciated? Other than borrowing from Sister for no real reason it's unbelievably good.

    Only thing that drives me nuts about this song is the chorus, but only because I'm a writer and ergo a grammar nut.

    It should be "WHO's afraid to love," not "THAT's afraid to love," Dave. DAMMIT.

    I think this is what tripping on acid sounds like.
    And I fell in love with the song the fifth time I heard it.

    I am a fan of the song too, but for the longest time I couldn't understand what Dave was saying during the: "I am in love with nothing less.
    Tear drops of joy runs off my face," part and thought he was saying "I am in love WITH MY FAMOUS TEAR DROPS..." thought that sounded a bit conceited and hilarious.

    one of my favorites off the album. who knew it would be come the longest jammed song so far. starting to get that long "epic" quality to it.

    This song is awesome, and I agree that it's most likely about a drug trip

    I am thoroughly in LOVE with this song. Cracked my all time top 3. Thats huge for me. Can't really put my finger on why I love it so much but it just hit me really hard on the very first listen.

    This song is mind-blowing. I could listen to the 7.28 version over and over again.

    This ranks just behind squirm for me. Squirm has this darker element to it, that I really didn't think they could do again. I think that is why I like it best, and I think it is the most structurally sound and interesting tune on the album. But LITHOG really impresses me. A song of quality, like I said, I wasn't sure was possible anymore.

    Get your flamethrowers ready DMBcers.

    Live:

    I dreaded hearing this song all of 2009 and most of 2010. Imo it was just way too long in a bad way. It seemed to slow down way to much. This is the same reason I hate to get Bartender at a show. If Bartender was just ten minutes long it would be insane. It just gets dragged out too much.
    The last two times I got it (Houston and Wrigley) it was amazing. Why was it amazing? It did not come to halt for any long period of time.

    Studio:

    I would put it behind
    Seven,
    Squirm,
    Dive In,
    Write A Song,
    Time Bomb &
    Why I Am

    They could play a show and alternate this with the Stone all night and I'd be content.
