Stone cutters made them from stones
Chosen specially for you and I
Who will live inside
The mountaineers gathered timber
In which to take along.
Driving many miles, knowing they'd get here.
I got to thinking about Midlake yesterday when writing up the post for Moss. Seeing as how they recently released the 10th-anniversary edition of their classic album The Trials of Van Occupanther, I figured it was time for a Most Important. There are many to choose from, but I'm going with the moody pioneer's song "Roscoe" as it's one of my personal favorites.
