Jackson's music embraces the human struggle in the battle to live with integrity and at least, a little hope

From late for the sky to running on empty the man hit a grand slam every time . After that he started with the political garbage but from 1973 through 1977 he was on top of his game. Terrific stuff from such a young guy then...

I haven't heard this song in 20 years. Then it was hyperbole. Now it is prophecy.

I feel that this song is about the best one Jackson Brown ever recorded.
