leaves upon the water
eight minutes and twenty eight seconds
listen to twenty seconds of leaves upon the water
  i remember more than i'd like to face myself as my gaze falls through the stories read at night will shed their light again to help me realize the gifts are all the creature wants to bring up to the surface you can see me tomorrow cause i'm gonna find a way to change my mind about tomorrow why did i ever listen to everyone's many thoughts to leaves upon the water

disonant, with pauses in the guitar line filled with joey waronker's drums, leaves upon the water closes alas after building to the album's climax. after the four minute song ends, the track continues, closing the song with piano, and after more silence, closing the album with thirty seconds of piano and voice.
