Author Notes

Oh man this track is killer, easily my favorite on Gish.
 
First song I've charted with some bass chords. Guitar has three solos, the last of which cuts out to let Jimmy Chamberlin go absolutely all out on drums as the song comes to a thrilling end.
 
Update 1: Lyric change ("Look close son and you'll believe" -> "Look closer than you'll believe")

Love the lyrics to this song (at least what I interpreted them to be ;)). I'm off to finish the album!

Wouldn't it be "then" rather than "than"?

No because it is in reference to the line before it->

"all your seven dreams look closer than you'll believe"

 

But I guess I see how it could mean that as well. Honestly, who knows. I could have been right all along with it being "Look close son and you'll believe".

Ah, I see. The previous line definitely clears things up.
