yeah, that track was one of the outstanding ones on DDN, which always catched my attention while playing it at moderate volume on my moms car while driving me around and I turned it louder.

No one song can encapsulate them, but Schizophrenia would probably come closer than any other song.

It rocks, it gets noisy and dense, but it is also soft and beautiful.

This is what I felt the first I heard this song : the whole of sonic art jumped at my ears!

I don't know about it being the most representative, it's just one of my favourite songs of theirs, so I'd say that. Maybe.

Schizophrenia is a good call. Teenage Riot too.

you've got awesome thurston singing.
good melodics, little ballad.
and representative guitars in break thru the verses.
then come back to melodic song.

one of my favourite songs ever.

Time takes its crazy toll
and how does your mirror grow
you better watch yourself when you jump into it
'cause the mirror's gonna steal your soul

I wonder how it came to be my friend
that someone just like you has come again
you'll never, never know how close you came
until you fall in love with the diamond rain

throw all his trash away
look out he's here to stay
your mirror's gonna crack when he breaks into it
and you'll never never be the same

look into his eyes and you can see
why all the little kids are dressed in dreams
I wonder how he's gonna make it back
when he sees that you just know it's make-belief

blood crystalized as sand
and now I hope you'll understand
you reflected into his looking glass soul
and now the mirror is your only friend

look into his eyes and you will see
that men are not alone on the diamond sea
sail into the heart of the lonely storm
and tell her that you'll love her eternally

time takes its crazy toll
mirror fallin' off the wall
you better look out for the looking glass girl
'cause she's gonna take you for a fall

look into his eyes and you shall see
why everything is quiet and nothing's free
I wonder how he's gonna make her smile
when love is running wild on the diamond sea

I'm trying to think of a song that has one of their massive buildups where they form an octave and move it up the neck, a cool guitar solo, some ugliness, some prettiness, and a noise section.
