"I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning" is a throwback to high school, which I luckily didn't get rid of when I was 18 and pious.
The melodies aren't that interesting, and he has that strange voice, but Emmylou Harris sings those haunting harmonies. And it's perfect for when you're sad, when you're overwhelmed, when you're tired, when you feel like you might be in love, when you're excited. It's everything.
There's nothing like singing out "I'm a single cell on a serpant's tongue"
and "No one ever plans to sleep out in the gutter. Sometimes that's just the most comfortable place"
or "I'm glad I didn't die before I met you"
and "You'll be free, child, once you have died, from the shackles of language and measurable time"
and "In the caverns of tomorrow, with just our flashlights and our love, we must plunge, we must plunge, we must plunge."
