Just a quick question. Does the song suddenly cut out instead of ending properly? On my copy of Images and Words it does. It's weird because its length corresponds to the length written in the track list on the CD.

P.S I posted in the pit because its only a small question and I need a quick answer.
Wikipedia it.

And yes it's supposed to be like that, since they want to show in some way that life as well can end that abruptly.
Gear as 2015:
Ibanez PGM401
Music Man JP6 (for sale)
Music Man Axis (for sale)
Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster
Ibanez EW Acoustic Steel string
Crappy Cort Acoustic 12-string

It ends quickly to comment on how life itself can suddenly end.
As joey radical said....

But yeah, that used to confuse me too, but then I discovered wikipedia.
