    Lyrics:

    Big blue
    For once in my life,
    I felt close to you.

    I was so overcome with emotion.
    When I was hurt and in need of affection,
    When I was tired and I couldn’t go home

    Then you offered protection

    So am I learning my lesson?

    Or am I back on my own?

    --

          Oh, c'mon @IBM. You know this relates to the poor, innocent people that you subject your storage technologies to. I'm tired, but I couldn't go home. FIX. YOUR. SHIT.

              This song reminds me of my love-hate relationship with my depression. It was always there for me when no one else is. Being comfortable in the chaos is always bittersweet.

                Inferior to F-Zero in every way. Not epic, gamers.

                                when i found the chords and started playing, i got a sudden pink floyd vibe, especially 'mother'.

                                      Favorite song from the album. I connect so deeply with this. The warped guitar sound with the electronic choir singers is a really great way to show how your religious beliefs can go up and down all the time... that it is a journey. Big Blue meaning God I think or at least the way I interpret it.

                                                5 songs in... All great... This band knows melody, rhythm… Reminds me of the Beatles. Short songs, but to the point you want to keep listening over and over.

                                                  Love this song and kind of sounds like the song 80s comedown machine by The Strokes.

                                                    not a fan of the new album, but glad others seem to be enjoying it. definitely not bad but the older stuff has more of what i liked

                                                      I think this song is about preserving the environment. Check out the lyrics, see if you agree
