Dig for Fire / Pixies

Dig for Fire / Pixies
There is this old woman, she lives down the road
You can often find her kneeling inside of her hole
And I often ask her “Are you looking for the mother lode?”
No, no my child, this is not my desire and then she said
“I’m digging for fire
I’m digging for fire
I’m digging for fire
I’m digging for fire”
There is this old man who has spent so much of his life sleeping
That he is able to keep awake for the rest of his years
He resides, on a beach, in a town where I am going to live
And I often ask him “Are you looking for the mother lode?”
No, no my child, this is not my desire and then he said
“I’m digging for fire
I’m digging for fire
I’m digging for fire
I’m digging for fire”

Got me a movie
I want you to know
Slicing up eyeballs
I want you to know
Girlie so groovy
I want you to know
Don’t know about you
But I am un chien andalusia
I am un chien andalusia

Wanna grow up to be
Be a debaser

Local Liquor Commission Meeting

Last night I spoke out at the Liquor Commission Meeting. I was upset at the ire which was voiced at the proposal of a $5 dollar a month rise in the cost of a Liquor License to defray such costs as policing, and an additional fee in the operation of video gaming in such establishments. The lawyer for and owner of the Lucky Seven had the nerve to object to the establishment being referred to as a “gaming lounge”. Considering the revelation that the Lucky Seven gaming lounge reported not only revenues from such gaming to be $130,000, but that it comprised over fifty percent of it’s earnings, the objection seems mercenary at best.  In addition, with such income, the Lucky Seven owner had the audacity to “cry poor” at the prospect of purchasing an ac unit for the business to bring it in line with building inspector’s demands. Another, bar owner complained that there were costs attached to running such businesses such as those he incurred in purchasing three houses to tear down to expand his parking lot. He then went on to argue that his business provides jobs to the community. At no time did it seem to register to this “businessman” that the jobs he provides to the community do not pay enough to start or raise a family, much less buy a house… which, by the way, is made that much less attainable for the sake of his own business reflected in the size of his growing parking lot! Another bar owner spoke comparing himself to Jesus in acknowledgment of his desire to speak in parable, which made no sense on any level other than that he wanted to invoke the name of Jesus in regard to himself, as he made a plea for Bloomington to become the “What Would Bloomington Do” by leading the way to a new policy among Illinois communities to do away with licensing fees altogether.
At the meeting, I only spoke to a few of the points I mention here, stepping up to the podium and signing in my name and address on the speakers list available to everyone’s view in attendance. But I feel it necessary to include some of the things said by this pasty crew of self-centered crybabies to press home the point of my suspicions at finding a dead bird placed on my front lawn early this morning. A carcass with a single hole in it’s head and left some time between 7 pm last night, after sundown, and 1:20 am.

Life, It’s a Shame / Gang of Four


Life, It’s a Shame / Gang of Four
Don’t stop out too late at night
Stop! it’s a caution

Don’t cross the red light
Stop! it’s a caution

To act for the good for congressman is money
A balance of power will ensure our safety

(making money is making sense)
Life!
(making money is making sense)
It’s a shame
(it’s logical, making sense)
(making money is making sense)

Don’t stop out too late at night
Stop! it’s a caution

Don’t cross the red light
Stop! it’s a caution

To act for the good for congressman is money
The right to get rich is in the constitution
Talk of corruption is to preach insurrection
Elected to power men suspend self-interest

You and i, we are satellites, it’s a shame
You and i, we are satellites, it’s a shame

Life!
(making money is making sense)
(making money is making sense)
It’s a shame
(it’s logical, making sense)
(making money is making sense)

(making money is making sense)
Life!
(making money is making sense)
It’s a shame
(it’s logical, making sense)
(making money is making sense)

To act for the good is to defend our homeland
A balance of power will ensure our safety
To step out of line is to risk disaster
To walk in the rain is to risk pneumonia
A balance of power will ensure our safety

You and i, we are satellites
(making money is making sense)
(making money is making sense)
It’s a shame
(it’s logical, making sense)
(making money is making sense)

You and i, we are satellites
(making money is making sense)
(making money is making sense)
It’s a shame
(it’s logical, making sense)
(making money is making sense)

Life!
(making money is making sense)
(making money is making sense)
It’s a shame
(it’s logical, making sense)
(making money is making sense)

Life!
(making money is making sense)
(making money is making sense)
It’s a shame
(it’s logical, making sense)
(making money is making sense)
