Sad song wrapped in loud dissonance

I am particularly taken with the Vines today, in part because the lead singer, Craig Nicholls, has Asperger's Syndrome and intrigues me. His behavior, on stage and off, has apparently been erratic, strange and unpredictable over the years... but he sure can sing and write songs. You wouldn't know it, necessarily, from this song, but he has a truly lovely voice. This song, dissonant and loud, is especially therapeutic for me.
