Yorktown-class aircraft carrier
I cried on the train home. I saw someone else doing the same. I wonder if it was for the same reason.
Agreed, The Garden has taken on an even greater meaning, before hand it was already an emotional and lyrically brilliant masterpiece. Honestly there are very few songs which I feel lived up to it lyrically and now it is the final goodbye from Neil and the band adding so much more depth to its message.
Went on the Rush well... rush tonight while drinking wine and listened to Freewill, La Villa Strangiato, The Spirit Of The Radio, Natural Science, The Camera Eye, Afterimage, Prime Mover, Mission, The Pass, Bravado, Ghost Of A Chance and The Garden.
Those songs are IMO special lyrically (except La Villa, of course), so I decided to visit them tonight.
Especially The Garden hit me. It was supposed to be the end of a graphic novel and a concept album, but is now much more than that.
"A measure of life is a measure of love and respect"
"The future disappears into memory, with only a moment between"
We lost a lyrical genious. With his last song, he wrote one of the most important messages to everyone...
