    Wilco - "Jesus, Etc."

    Lyric: "Last cigarettes are all you can get / Turning your orbit around"

    Wilco's plaintiff ballad off their stand-out album Yankee Foxtrot Hotel feels like a study in slowly giving up. Which is exactly how the last cigarette of the night often feels—it's usually even more unnecessary in every way than all the ones that came before—but it feels like the last bit of freedom left in the night before everything ends. Sometimes a cigarette is all you need to feel like space and time are malleable.
