"There is freedom within... There is freedom without... Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup... There's a battle ahead...Many battles are lost... But you never see the end of the road while you're traveling with me... Hey now, hey now, don't dream it's over... Hey now, hey now, when the world comes in... Let it come, let it come to build a wall between us... You know they won't win".
Sorry if I got those lyrics wrong, but when I heard this news, it was the first thing that came to mind.
How sad. He seemed so full of joy and mischief everytime he appeared in an interview or in their videos. How strange. I recently bought their greatest hits compilation and have been playing it ceaselessly, thinking "I'd forgotten just how good these guys were." I've discovered I'm listening more to the less well known songs that are absolute gems like "Four Seasons in One Day," "Fall at Your Feet," and "Pineapple Head." Now their music, which always felt upbeat no matter what the subject, will be forever tinged with sadness. :frowning:
