It's in my hair, it's on my clothes
It's in the river over the road
It's shining down, my angry star
Hanging off the hood of my car

I'm not going far
I'm not going far

It's coming down, they're coming up the shoulders
What have they found, I wonder if they know?
I'm in a bull black Chevy Nova
Silhouetted by the setting sun

This can't be undone
This can't be undone

If I'm the one with blood on my sofa
Blood in the sink, blood in the trunk
High at the wheel of a bull black Nova
Then I'm sorry as the setting sun

This can't be undone
Can't be outrun

It's in my head, there's blood in the sink
I can't calm down, I can't think
I keep calling, there's blood in the trunk
I can't calm down

You should see this peformed live——-its driving rhythm was hypnotic, and the intense dramatic vocals at the end really accentuated it all the more.

 
Seeing Bull Black Nova live should be required! Seeing Wilco live is DEF required!

So, the mental tension and disarray of a violent act and realization likely comes out as musically discordant--dissonance is the key to much of the musical texturing Jeff Tweedy employs to evoke emotion and experience. This tune, in full context, succeeds in drawing that emotional landscape: imagine coming down from a raging drug/emotional violent high and then confronting the realization that something awful has happened, there's blood on the car and on your hands. Cacophonous works... for me.

  Um, the song or the comment? Took me a few listens to get this one—annoying, now it's not.

So - you want them to go back to being good old boy country rockers, eh?

This song I like the least on the record. Overall I think people will really like this, lots of good songs on this one, like Wilco (The song) and the duet with Feist.
I really liked the first part, although the rhythm guitar is a little on the harsh side, but the last part was a headache inducer.  Maybe in the old days I would have laid on the floor between a set of stereo speakers after smoking a doobie and gotten a good self-induced freak-out from something like the last half of this song, but those days are long gone.

Something to look forward to. Thanks again, Bill.

Not til June 30. It's streaming on their website, however.
I figured they wouldn't mind if I stole it, uploaded it and spread the good news...

 
Fantastic! Thanks.  Audio Commander (program) to the rescue... {#Music}
Pretty good for Wilco.
Man. That was kinda cool.
Can't wait to hear the rest of this ... I LOVE Jeff Tweedy!
