"Rising Red Lung" as written by and Jeff Tweedy....
I saw a rising red lung
Glisten under the sun
I wonder when it will pop
In the snow
If the melody's a mistake
An embrace at the wake
How long does it take
For us to know

I want a wig that's been blown
By something unknown
Buried under a mile
Of snow

I found a fix for the fits
Come listen to this
As intimate as a kiss
Over a phone
And it goes

I found a fix for the fits
Come listen to this
It's buried under the hiss
It glows
Like a powerful smile
A car radio dial
As intimate as a kiss
Over a phone
And it goes…

    General CommentI believe that The rising red lung glistening under the sun is what appears in the reflection of water. When it pops in the snow, the seasons have changed and it's now winter. This all represents time. He finds ways to get through the sadness of missing someone he loves.
