recklessness - the 13th and final song of birdie

going down for a walk downtown, gonna find a miracle bar
going down for a walk downtown, gonna find a miracle bar
gonna meet somebody there, i don't care who they are
things just happen at random, oh, you know they do
things just happen at random, oh, you know they do
i happened at random, pal, and you know you did too
gonna have a miracle drunk at a miracle bar
gonna have a miracle drunk at a miracle bar
it's gonna be alright even if i go too far

That raspberry-sounding rando synth sound, and that guitar solo, make it feel like this miracle bar would have a sticky floor and greasy tables.

The creepy-ass background percussion sounds, and that wash of background noise and the subtle bass line give it an ominous, threatening anchor.

My only criticism is that, as the last song on the album, it shouldn't end so abruptly; I feel like you should have faded this slowly out. The miracle-bar ambiance you set up for the last few minutes is just great to soak in and fade off into, but then suddenly it's gone on a lone p-b-h-r-t-b-r-r-r-rp.
