This is one of those great popsongs the indiekids loved. The 8 note, railroadtracklike, bass notes carries the song throughout as if on a long journey. The chorus, about being in such a situation you don't know how to get out anymore, a lover far away, accentuated by acoustic guitat strums. There is a great bit of guitar madness halfway in the instrumental break before another spoken break about tension. Music and lyrics are well integrated, a little masterpiece about turn of the century confusion.
