    This is quite the song, musically a bit deceptive since it's quite upbeat, but those lyrics really cut deep. I think it's a given that he's singing about Cornell, and his brother Chris. I think the fuck yous at the end reflect the frustration of losing loved ones in fucked up situations, at least that's how I interpreted it. The vocals towards the end are excellent :)

    Yeah now that you put it that way that makes sense. I’m totally in love with this song, very well written, both music and lyrics……the ending is some of the best I’ve heard in a while

    I also get shades of Amongst The Waves and towards the end, a more melodic Insignificance, thought I might be hearing things!

    Amongst the Waves for sure. I agree there. I also hear a DOTC vibe in the bridge. Cool song. Best of the three so far.

    Eddie tried to take out every hook from songs around No Code.  He is definitely embracing big choruses with big hooks.  I like the song.  The lyrics make this average song better.

    It’s not my favorite. New song is more the direction I like. But good for him for trying something new - will never knock that.

    Gigaton and Into the Wild to me are 1000% better than what we’re heard so far. But there are people here who will say the opposite. Which makes it fun - something for everyone.

    You think Buckle Up is 1000% better than Brother the Cloud? Really?

    Well, we have supposedly heard the three best of the album so far.  got a ways to go.


    Long Way is awful to me.  Darius Rucker pretending to be Petty with results what you'd expect.

    I was comparing album to album, based on what has dropped so far for EV + Earthlings.

    Who's heard Brother The Cloud on the radio? Did they cut out the last part or did they mute the "fuck you"?
