Pixies – Distance Equals Rate Times Time lyrics

Distance equals rate times time

I had me a vision
There wasn't any television
From looking into the sun
I'm looking into the sun
We got to think quick
Says the blind st. Nick hey
From looking into the sun
Looking into the sun
We got to get some beer
We got no atmosphere
From looking into the sun
Looking into the sun
I had me a vision
There wasn't any television
From looking into the sun.

    This one is pretty much my theme song and thank you Frank Black for singing about the weather, aliens, geography, and Ray Bradbury which are strangely my favorite topics. I can relate to this one big time so I will write from first person. I don't watch television and I had a vision from spending a lot of time outside, under the sun. The sun is burning holes in the ozone layer over the south pole and exhaust is causing warm sunny weather at the north pole. Santa Claus is going blind from all the extra sunlight at the poles and we better think quick. Sometimes I like to get some beer and drink a couple extra because I'm so frustrated that the majority of people don't fully understand what we are doing to our atmosphere, an atmosphere that is eroding away, at least the ozone shield anyhow. There is just too much sunlight getting in. And the warming of the north and south poles slows the weather down in the middle to cause stagnant high pressures. That's even more sunlight. And I had this vision because I don't watch television. It's neat that at the end of the song he says "that's the way I learned". Me too.
