    I wonder why we listen to poets when nobody gives a fuck. How hot and $orrowful, this machine begs for luck ... .. .

    Still haunting and amazing. That noise/drone "drop out" ending that starts around 3:45 is always stunning.

    I know as long as I live I will never hear a song quite like this, which saddens me

    Wow wow wow, such a slow and sad-sounding track.. I've been recommended Wilco, but I did not know what to expect at all.

    I wonder why we listen to poets when nobody gives a fuck. All my lies are always wishes I know I would die if I could come back new. I'm down on my hands and knees Every time I hear a doorbell ring, I shake like a toothache, every time I hear myself sing. Tweedy is a genius.

    "I wonder why we listen to poets when nobody gives a fuck." I love that line. I've always thought that this song had some of the most potent lyrics on the album.

    Love the proggy bit at the end of the studio version. Hard to pick a favorite Wilco song but this is definitely up there.
