The lyrics are great. Piano accomp. is good, too. The melody could use some fiddling with, though, and the whole thing might be called repetitive (although some might argue that's what gives the song its hypnotic effect). This is the first video of his I've seen, so it might take a while for his "idosyncratic" performance style to grow on me.

The comments on You Tube are asinine.

WOW!!!!! That link you posted wasn't for the faint of heart. The images were as strong if not stronger than the lyrics. But I cannot lie, as extreme as it may seem there were many truths in that video.
