Constellation Blues

Album: "Glad All Over"
Lyrics: Jakob Dylan
Music: The Wallflowers (Jakob Dylan, Greg Richling, Rami Jafee, Stuart Mathis, Jack Irons)

"Constellation Blues" touches on global conflict, with its dead soldiers "bankrupt and buried by war that is carried out by messengers now," as Dylan puts it in the lyrics of the song. As the father of four, it's his biggest concern, he said.
"That's the first fear that anybody has who has children, that there's going to be a war anywhere close to them, and that their children may be asked to be involved -- especially in a war that they don't agree with," he said. "A lot of songs I write have images of that. That's just because it's eternal and war is inevitable. It's a strong place to draw the images you need to write lyrics."
