song length: 5m 58s
this song has been haunting me for about a week now, and in my current state i'm tempted to say this is probably the ultimate song about solitude, with the saddest first line ever penned in rock music. in so few words mark kozelek captures moods from fleeting moments as we go through the motions, and makes them nearly tactile:
uncle joebest listened to alone in your room in the middle of the night. what do you listen to when you feel most alone?
where have all the people gone in my life?
i’m looking at the ceiling
with an awful feeling of loss
the after late night television pain
i’m running out of strength
