The drums are pounding and there is a sense of motion. Another song driven by drums. Marching fast like walking with a mission. Walking through the crowded town yet there is a sense of loneliness. Wandering the streets aimlessly when you are young. Sense of freedom is vast and it´s also heavy on the shoulders. Phantom busses drive by and the streets are empty. Inviolate town...the double meaning, sense of something under the surface. Scary yet gentle.
I love the part that starts at 1:40. It all spirals to mid-song chaotic climax. The hawk of the song. Dogs bark and amusement park rollercoaster ride drowns everything. Then the drums take it back on course: tum-tum-tum-tum. That´s what I remember from this song, the drums. All other instruments are playing a second fiddle.
