"Uncle Joe" as written by and Mark Edward Kozelek....
Where have all the people gone in my life
I'm looking at the ceiling with
An awful feeling of loss and of loneliness
The after late night television pain

I'm running out of strength
I'm running, running, running out of strength
And it feels so wonderful to swim in our fears
And divide inseparable, the awakening of life

Oh, Uncle Joe
Could you tell me about what you know?
Of being having mental problems
And their solutions too

I'll give anything a try once
I'll try anything three times
I don't care, I don't care
I don't care, I don't care

But there's no company
That can stand to be with me
So my dependency on you grows
And I am not very well read

And consider I will lose my heart
And can you spare me of my pain?
Can't you spare me of my tears?

Oh, Uncle Joe, Uncle Joe
Uncle Joe, Uncle Joe

And suicide's intentional when I spin in your fear
I am over-influenced by movies
And you should've gone to the fear
To my hope, the darkest hope

Did you know? Lies become the sky
That's all gone to the fear
To my hope, the darkest hope
Do you know? Lies become the sky

    General CommentI think everyone feels this kinda pain once in their life, I know I have. This song is just totally about the loneliness, the vulnerability of living in a huge world and you being so small and unnoticable.
