Fantastic song, extremely powerful. I know the story behind it, but because of the lyrical content and the zurna I associate it more with the Anzacs and Gallipoli along with Australian troops dying overseas in general, rather than Heath Ledger. It also seems to make more sense in context as almost every song on the album references either a battle, war, ruins or soldiers in some way.
I'm disappointed slightly, it seemed to trail on a bit and the intro gets on your nerves, the reason I said I was really enjoying it is cause I am, a breath of fresh air from one of my favourite artists, just nice to hear from them. Hoping the album is great.
Sick shit! They begin live shows with this - first the Indian sounding thing comes over the speakers, then the drummer whacks out an awesome beat as well, then the three guys make their entrance and begin rocking it up.
