I’ll give you a tip you’ll thank me for forever. Have you ever heard of clorella? Three capsules a day every morning and you’ll never have the flu or a cold again, for the rest of your life! 100% natural! Been doing it for four years now and it is simply miraculous.

Really wonderful song. He never was so personal about himself ever. This watching at himself is
mirrored in Floating Away somehow, don't you think?

Or he gets schizophrenic of course seeing other people where are no...  ;D

No hiding behind pictures, allegories, not using other charakters to explore himself. Really literally "naked" talking about himself. Took him a long time to reach this part of development, and it's really one. And also he has the selfconfidence to tell us about him as he feels he is an artist and has something to leave behind.

I am curious about the song (I "only" have the "Deluxe" edition with 16 tracks), but MK store seems to be a "slow learner", so i bet i won´t receive it until next week, i guess. So i would be grateful by any PM (i won´t grab and run, for sure).

Lyrics seem something charming for me, like a Ray Bradbury Tale, whose writing i love.

It seems the bonus tracks are not available digitally at all !!?
I got the deluxe LP box set from Amazon yesterday. Unfortunately the bonus tracks are not included in the downloads you get with the code from the box (these are only 14 songs), and neither they are in your Amazon mp3 library like normally when buying a CD / LP at Amazon. Even worse, no mp3 songs at all in your Amazon account. This feature is for some obscure reason only available with the CD or with the LP but NOT with the expensive mega super CD+LP box set !!?? :thumbsdown

Mark this song should close the album. Why? Beautiful and moving ... Matchstick Man and then Pale Imitations. That should be the order

Wonderful tune, nice guitar solo in de middle part. Would even be better if the flute parts were replaced by trumpet.

In the intro there is very low some music on an accordeon if I am not mistaken... like an echoe
Gives me the feeling the narrator (Mark) leaves a room where music is played to be alone for a while?

He often said that in his family was so very important and that his Mum played all those records.
Could this be a little "hommage" to that?

Agreed. This would've been a great closure of the (regular) album, very tender, sweet and reminiscent.
