Favorite Song of the Day: The Sad Punk

Today's song's title says it all, capturing the mood of yours truly — an unrepentant punk with sadness in his heart. It's a little black in subject matter, but that's pretty par for the course for Pixies (irony in that name, to be sure). The more I read, hear and see of the world and what we're doing to it, the more I too think about extinction. Mortality is a bitch, because you die.

The Sad Punk by Pixies

i smell smoke
that comes from a gun
named extinction
it was a long time ago
could have happened to anyone
he was struck by a bullet
and he melted into fluid named extinction
one thousand miles an hour
i'm just like anyone
i want to feel
the road of tar beneath the wheel named extinction
and evolving from the sea
would not be too much time for me
to walk beside you in the sun
i read something
about a son of a gun
named extinction
