Wilco – “Born Alone”

As I’ve been listening to the new Wilco album, it’s clear that track 6, “Born Alone” is my standout favorite. So I thought it would be pretty fitting to point out these genius lyrics, considering my lyric post last week was “Die Alone” from Ingrid Michaelson.

“Tonight I’d rather count the warm fuse internally
Subtract the silence of myself
I would rather choose the middle mind of mystery
Reverse a riddle for my health…

The valves are blowing stone
The kids are unabashed
Loneliness postponed
Mine eyes deceiving glory
I was born to die alone
