"Farewell Transmission" as written by and Jason Molina....
The whole place is dark
Every light on this side of the town
Suddenly it all went down
Now we'll all be brothers of the fossil fire of the sun
Now we will all be sisters of the fossil blood of the moon
Someone must have set em up
Now they'll be working in the cold grey rock, in the hot mill steam
Now they'll be working in the concrete
In the sirens and the silences now all the great set up hearts - all at once start to beat
After tonight if you don't want us to be a secret out of the past
I will resurrect it; I'll have a good go at it
I'll streak his blood across my beak and dust my feathers with his ashes
I can feel his ghost breathing down my back
I will try and know whatever I try; I will be gone but not forever
I will try and know whatever I try; I will be gone but not forever
The real truth about it is no one gets it right
The real truth about it is we're all supposed to try
There ain't no end to the sands I've been trying to cross
The real truth about it is my kind of life's no better off
If its got the maps or if it's lost
We will try and know whatever we try; we will be gone but not forever
Come on let’s try and know whatever we try, we will be gone but not forever
The real truth about it is there ain't no end to the desert I'll cross
I've really known it all along
Mama here comes midnight with the dead moon in its jaws
Must be the big star about to fall
Mama here comes midnight with the dead moon in its jaws
Must be the big star about to fall
Long dark blues
Will o the wisp
Long dark blues
The big star is falling
Long dark blues
Will o the wisp
The big star is falling
Long dark blues
Through the static and distance
Long dark blues
The farewell transmission
Long dark blues
Listen
Long dark blues
Listen
Long dark blues
Listen
Long dark blues
Listen

    General CommentI don't know about anyone else, but I think it's about the collapse of human civilization and the rise of a society of primitive savagery and superstition.
