Never heard it, but from reading it I feel the verses lay things out too neatly like a lesson, or a mathematucal exercise. All the working is , and it's "QED" when it's done.

It's all there for us, there's nothing for the listener to add. But I suppose the chorus to some extent might supply that element.

I'd say it's the kind of song that would benefit from being passed around by word of mouth, and weathered a bit to give it texture.
