Very tough call. Both are 4 star songs just one rung down from the best. I reluctantly choose DEW.

Marathon is one of the only post-MP songs to nearly make my top ten, DEW is super great too, but it has to be Marathon.

"From first to last
The peak is never passed
Something always fires the light that gets in your eyes
ONE MOMENT'S HIGH
And glory rolls on by
LIKE A STREAK OF LIGHTNING
THAT FLASHES AND FADES in the summer sky!"

And modulations, lol.

Some of my all time favorite lyrics..by anyone!!

Great poll!!!  Keep them coming.


Both are 5 star songs for me so its basically a tie.  That being said, after a little thought, I will go with Distant Early Warning - by a slender sliver.  Love both songs.

Really really close but I gave the edge to DEW. Though tomorrow it could be Marathon.

DEW by approximately the same margin that the 1992 Dream Team beat Angola.

Fück me dead! I love both of these songs...I guess I gotta go with DEW. Alex's solo on Marathon is pretty kick ass but DEW it is!

For a synth song Marathon has a killer bass line. It gets my vote.
