Helpless Son / by E

      The lyrics speak so blatantly that it's completely entrancing and the first time you listen to the song you should just be stuck reading the note cards (the first, and only, time I will tell you to watch the music video during your first listen).
     The composition picks itself up after the first verse and winds its way through these honest lyrics with a set purpose that's beautiful and those questions asked in quick succession as the song crescendos is filled with such urgency and a need to know that it's completely perfect and when it slows down at 2:11 and meanders towards its end with the promise of "always", it's disheartening, but amazing. Said the Whale found the perfect words to use for this song and that emotional composition makes this song so powerful.
