Side with the Seeds

11″ x 14″ Mixed media

If you are not familiar with Jeff Tweedy and Wilco, I highly suggest you check them out. You can start by watching the video embedded below.

The song, “Side with the Seeds” can probably be interpreted many different ways, and like art, I think it is for the appreciator to determine what it means to them.

Regardless, I hope you enjoy the mixed media painting and the music!

“Side with the Seeds” Lyrics written by Jeff Tweedy and Mikael Jorgensen

Tires type black
Where the blacktop cracks
Weeds spark through
Dark green enough to be blue
When the mysteries we believe in
Aren’t dreamed enough to be true
Some side with the leaves
Some side with the seeds

The treetops nod
The rain applauds
The park grows dark
And the swings all slowly die
But you and I will be undefeated
By agreeing to disagree
No one wins but the thieves
So why side with anything?

The streetlights glow
Comes and goes
When the sun comes back
As we all can plainly see
Embracing the situation
Is our only chance to be free
Oh, I’ll side with you
If you side with me

Success! You're on the list.
