Thanks for the feedback all!

Yeah, this is a tough one as the start/stop is the point of the song (a play on two steps forward, one step back) but I do hear what you hear in terms of flow. There's probably a way to do this without hitting the listener over the head with it.

Haha, yeah, again probably right on the money there. Not a bad place to be and the guys I'm passing this off to are huge Flaming Lips fans, except I was personally trying to get to that country place with it. Well sometimes ya gotta let the song tell you what it wants to be instead of forcing it.

Thanks for the feedback guys!
