Uplifting? Interesting idea! If you stick with that criteria then really only Lazarus raises my spirits in that way. If I stretch it to songs that make me feel good because they are so damn good to listen to, then Arriving Somewhere.... and Trains do it every time - even though the core of them is rather depressing! ("...the last thing you hear......" etc. )

Nothing SW has done is particularly uplifting.

It is a good song. Simple, well written, nice words and really quite accessable and not very prog. It could have been a big big hit IMO..

I guess Porcupine Tree were bigger than I thought. I was surprised to see SW on BBC Breakfast in the summer, talking about his new single and being ask to define 'prog rock' at 8am on a school day!
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

I keep trying to come up with a song but every time I pick one it's a SW solo song. D'oh!

Lazarus (lovely song) and Lightbulb Sun. Some of the latter's lyrics are positive and about recovery from illness, and I love the uptempo sections with the excellent lead guitar. A great track from a really solid album.

As for P-Tree as a whole, I find much of it overly meandering and melancholy, so I much prefer Wilson solo and Blackfield; the melancholy is still there, but there's more concise song structure and plenty of memorable melody.
Let the monkey drive.
