His lyrics are perfect: "Do You Remember Walter", "Village Green", "People Take Pictures Of Each Other", "Some Mother's Son" (it reminds me of Stanley Kubrick's "Paths Of Glory", the best anti-war movie of all time), "Shangri-la"(this one reminds me of Orson Welles' "Citizen Kane" - "Now that you've found your paradise, this is your kingdom to command, you just want to sit in your Shangri-la..." - Kane alone in his castle), "Young And Innocent Days" (Kane again, the "Rosebud" thing), "Lola", "This Time Tomorrow", "Days" ("Thank you for the days, those endless days, those sacred days you gave me, I'm thinking of the days, I won't forget a single day, believe me...").
Ray about "Village Green Preservation Society":
"It's like a club that people get into. It's all in the head. If you're down, think of the Village Green, your own personal version of it, OK?"
