This is one of my favourite songs ever. I don't know what inspired me to look it up this evening but I did. I remember seeing this video years ago, back when I was in high school, I think, and running out to buy the album on the basis of hearing it just that once (couldn't get the song on a 45).
The song has a new poignancy just lately; the lines "buy the sky and sell the sky and bleed the sky" bring to mind my ongoing purchase of a condo apartment several hundred feet up in the air. In a way, it does seem like a rather unnatural, highly presumptuous thing to do.
