Steven Wilson has named this his best song so far. Twenty years into his career, that's an excellent sign.
In Steven's words, the sing is about "an old man at the end of his life who is waiting to die. He thinks back to a time in his childhood when he was incredibly close to his older sister. She was everything to him, and he was everything to her. Unfortunately, she died when they were both very young." The man becomes convinced that a raven, who visits the man's garden, is something of "a symbol or a manifestation of his sister. The thing is, his sister would sing to him whenever he was afraid or insecure, and it was a calming influence on him. In his ignorance, he decides that if he can get the raven to sing to him, it will be the final proof that this is, in fact, his sister who has come back to take him with her to the next life."
Keys are the highlight to this song, playing the entire song. For now, strings are not charted, but I may attempt to do so in the future.
Bass and guitar come in before drums and play slow melodies until drums come in. Guitar then joins the piano motif before going into a shredding solo and bass starts a much faster riff with various fun variations.
Drums are late to the party, but quite fun while it lasts.
