"Alone With The Owl" as written by and Jason Molina....
Alone with the owls howling "pain, pain, pain"
Alone with the owls howling "pain"
Alone with the owls howling "pain, pain, pain"
You don’t have to live this way

While I lived was I a stray black dog
While I lived was I a stray black dog
While I lived was I anything at all

Did I have to live this way
I stood beside the ocean not a single wave

Beside the ocean not a single wave
Beside the ocean not a single wave
Not a single thing left to say

With the owl howling “pain, pain, pain”
With the ocean howling the same
With my life howling the same
Did I have to live this way

    General CommentHaving spotted many words like "program" in his lyrics, also the album cover of "Protection Spells" showing a bird in a cage, this "owl" could be interpreted as the Illuminati and their programming of certain gifted children. Makes all his desperation seem even more dire.
