  • Lyrics
  • This song was originally written for Midlake's previous album, The Trials of Van Occupanther. It wasn't used but was given a last-minute reprieve and re-recorded down to the last note and re-instated as a the album's title track.
  • The album sleeve pays homage to a major favorite of the band-Andrei Rublev, the 1966 film by Russian writer and director Andrei Tarkovsky about the 15th-century icon painter Andrei Rublev.

  • Kevin from Reading, PaMidlake's best songs, like this one, do sound as if they could have been recorded in the 70s alongside "Lucky Man'' by ELP or "Thick as a Brick" by Jethro Tull. The entire "Van Occupanther" album is standout.
