 Brilliant, devastating song. I always found the verses to be stunning as well.

 A wonderful article for a wonderful song. For me the song has always had such a redemptive quality and you articulated that perfectly.

 Leave it to the Koz to trump his own work. I find the chorus on version on the Vanilla Sky soundtrack to be even more haunting, directly focused at its listener. So many gems on Blue Guitar, Revelation Big Sur would have made a good Seconds piece.

 I thought about mentioning the Vanilla Sky version of the song, but this was running a bit long anyway. I actually don't like it at all, partly because I heard this one first, but that difference in pacing and just the sound of the instruments takes away from the effect I describe here, I think. Thanks for the comments, guys.
