Wondering if anyone loves the yelling behind isaac's singing in convenient parking during the first time the chorus is sung as much as i do??

well some guy walks in lookin a bit like everyone I've ever seen
he moves just like cirsco disco, breath 100% listerine
he says lookin at someone else, but directing everything to me
"every time anyone get on their knees to pray, well it makes my telephone ring"
well i'll be damned
he said "you were right, no one's runnin thin whole thing"
he had a theory too
he said that "god takes care of himself, god takes care of himself, and you of you"

* "And I miss you when you're around"
* The breakdown in "Point A to Point B" at the end
* Breakdown in Cowboy Dan
* Broke in its entirety -> God what a song

to build on the comment before,

"and i'm lonely when you're around...i'm. never. lonely. when. I'm by myself. (love that lyrical cadence)

and more and more the first line of PD..."you've got the perfect disguise and you're lookin okay..." awesome.

I really like the electric guitar hits around 2:40 in "The Parting of the Sensory" (The weather changed it for the worse...BWOOOW!...it came down on us like it had been rehearsed)

The "deep water" part in "King Rat" that happens around 2:50.

Around 6:40 in "The Stars are Projectors" when everything but the violins get "bouncy"

When the bass slows down and drops out in the instrumental part of "I Came as a Rat" also around 2:40.

The bridge onwards in "Talking Shit About a Pretty Sunset" which also happens around 2:40

The ending of "Sunspots in the House of the Late Scapegoat" there's something that kind of sounds like wind that gets louder as the band fades out.

Around 6:40 in "Night on the Sun" something about that, man. It sound like it's over, but then it just keeps going, like it's refusing to die or something. I don't know, it's hard to put into words.
