Little Boy Blue and the Man on in the Moon\\


Added DiffLines:

** To make things worse, the last verse happens after the dad has been retired for a long time, which increases the feeling one might get from the final chorus that father and son will ''never'' get that time together...

* "Last Stand"

to:

* If "Last Stand"Stand" doesn't turn on the waterworks, you have no soul:
-->'''Well, so it was late last night\\
She left on the final flight\\
You watched as the last light\\
Went out there in your soul\\'''

-->'''Take a look around the top\\
For now you face the final drop\\
You'll go down fast and you won't stop\\
You found a very deep hole\\'''

-->'''Say you're off on the last ride\\
Remembering how she last cried\\
And you know that love had long last died\\
In silence, not in pain\\'''

-->'''You lost your last, your last race\\
Stumbled in last place\\
Too late to find the one last face\\
Waiting in the rain'''

* "A Better Place To Be" not really tearjerker material, until the final reprise of the chorus sinks in. That total loneliness, given a moment of silence, will make you sob.
* "Sniper" Scary, yes. Haunting, yes. Heart rending, very. Anyone who has a dry eye after hearing this obviously didn't understand what the heck just happened.
