I went with Beneath, Between and Behind.  It is such a lyrically dense song but it rocks, and I think it's because of the rhythmic bass line moving everything along.  

I never really thought about Ged's top ten bass lines ( I tend to like them ALL)  so I'm not sure if this is one or not, but gut instinct is that it's not quite top ten worthy.  :lol:

These polls are way too hard. Lee has too many basslines that you can actually walk around humming without thinking of the rest of the song...

Actually, I can't really hum in fast triplets, but you know what I mean...
