I love this song.  I like how the guitar and vibraphone sounding synthesizer swim around each other in mixed meters.  The melody, particularly in the chorus, matches the lyrics so well.  The chorus is largely descending.  For the most part, the melody of the verse is also descending.  It will go up an interval and descend, go up to a higher interval and descend, etc.

I love the imagery of feeling let down, hanging around, crushed like a bug in the ground.  It’s the perfect song for this foggy evening, after a long and difficult week.
