ben folds - finger

(no subject)

You know how there was the elusive 'Father' which now doesn't seem to exist as a track? A lot of people thought it was the song which we now know as 'The End', but I don't know why.. All I know is the band at one point said something about a song called Father, and it's now apparently non-existant.

I reckon I have an idea of what the deal is.

Most of you would be familiar with American Idiot, I assume.. you know how some of its longer tracks have many different parts?

EG:

"Homecoming"
I. "The Death of St. Jimmy"
II. "East 12th St."
III. "Nobody Likes You"
IV. "Rock and Roll Girlfriend"
V. "We're Coming Home Again"

It's one track, but the song has parts.

I think 'Father' might be the slow intro part of Welcome To The Black Parade? And even if it's not, maybe more than one of the new songs is epic and has various 'sections' like above?

What do you reckon?
