2000 : 16 "3rd Planet," by Modest Mouse

The universe is shaped exactly like the earth if you go straight long enough you'll end up where you were

There have been points where I have felt like part of an atom. I feel tightly packed, yet there are big voids between my neutrons and electrons. I feel both small and empty. That is the feeling I get from this song. We all feel like we are watched, we all feel like we are alone, we all feel like we are crowded. Over and over again the pattern repeats, even when you change scale. I think that is why this song works so well.
