I got a different reading from it.

Structurally, it's the same as Nirvana's 'Something in the Way' (Which is also used in the film. Just a repeated pattern of F#m to D. Even the tempo's pretty much the same.

Now, I don't know whether Michael Giaccino was inspired by the Nirvana song, or if he composed the music first.

Either way, placing both pieces in the same soundtrack, well, I just heard variations on 'Something in the Way' throughout the film.
