awesome
whoa. gotta listen to this one with headphones. whoa.
I think Pandora's definition of a laid-back vocal is one that isn't screaming bloody murder. So I suppose by that definition, Trent *would* be laid-back in this song. Other songs, eh, not so much. =P

You can just feel the pain seep from Trent's voice! I love music that makes me feel, even to these low depths. Ranks right up there with "Hurt" by NIN.

this song makes me want to cease existance. and yet, i still listen to it >_<
"A laid-back male vocal" is a really *wrong* call, as far as song characterist i c s go. The rest of the characteriza t i o n s , sure, but the vocals are utterly sad, despairing, as the other commenters point out.
Yeah it is. Totally sad.
One of the SADDEST songs ever written.
