****** With the utmost respect to "Broccoli", this is the best song to mention Columbine in 2016. But then this song can manage to do so without it being a jarring tonal shift, it really fits in the narrative of the song.
What's a surprise to me is that after discovering the band through one of their most frenetic singles, what I really came for in the following album was one of their most sluggish tracks, every part of the song feels like it's being forced out.
I find myself thoroughly compelled here. The chorus is enormous and impactful. Without wanting to sound like a spoiled child (I really wasn't), the sentiment of 'You buy me stuff to fill me up, but I think I am bottomless' really hits home for me. Also who hasn't ever had a dream that suddenly ends just before it's about to get to somewhere major? There's a particularly chilling call back to "LOSE" at the end, where the dog that his parents got 'so we'd learn about loss' has been put to sleep. I may be too young to have gotten on board with emo music when it was at its peak, but there's still plenty being released nowadays that does the job.
