This is our life
A mirror to admire
A movie on the silver screen
Kiss me for the credit roll
This is my face
A cheekbone to abseil
As I let you conquer me
Let the universe do its worst
Devil do your worst
Black star do your worst
Darling when the rain comes down on us
And we'll emerge gleaming
Like diamonds in a gutter full of stones
Making their way back to the sea
Let this old world do its worst
Devil do your worst
Hurricane do your worst
People have extraordinary
Capacity to care for many
You need never doubt it's love

I always hear an Elliot Smith-like riff and chord progression in this one....
Is the vocalist from Silversun Pickups double timing?

Calico (California) is also a "ghost town", midway between Las Vegas and Los Angeles, in the Calico Mountains, near Barstow.  Calico cats are almost always females because of that X chromosome, but you probably knew that.
A nice acoustic sound with very tactile lyrics. 7
I like this album, however, it's lacking some emotion that was on their previous albums. Their previous albums are great.

A calico's a girl, and a caliper's definitely something other. Uh...yeah.
Like the song, too!

Hmm...I like this better than the earlier stuff I heard by Turin Brakes. This sounds very much like Remy Zero, to me.
A great art cover, but...the song is more or less a sad thing.

It's one hell of a photo, right enough - must have been taken by one of those nutcase 'storm chasers' who chase tornados. Me, I'd have been sh1tting bricks with that thing bearing down on me.

Nice number - 7 from the Nottingham jury.

I really like this... creates a mood, but where have I heard it before?
