I love this! It has that certain undefinable something that makes it very cool

Amazing just how much can be said about life in one short narrative. We pack, we get the ticket, we stand in line, we wait...we miss the boat, we swim for our lives! Who'll tip the porter..? Life goes on.

Great song guys! Love the fact that something so perky and "up" illustrates something so desperate and scary. Also, like the use of the bassoon as the boat whistle. It mocks me.

They always said to be patient and my ship would come in....Then I'd be at the railroad station....Cold and lonely in Indiana....Good tune.
