Rival

This is a flippin’ great song by Pearl Jam, brought to mind because the two companies that I’ve set my sights on, and that are responding to my advances, both have their Preston offices next-door to each other. Hence, they are rivals for my booty!

Oh, but the song actually seems to be about the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Because of the references to Red Sun, explode, both barrels (2 bombs), unspeakable, chemicals, etc. Basically the whole song.

All my rivals will see what I have in store, my gun…
I’ve been harbouring fleets in this reservoir, Red Sun…
And this nation’s about to explode

Your disciples are riddled with metaphors, well hung…
Better pony up and bring both your barrel-fulls, not one…
As we release this unspeakable toll…

How’s our mother to damn these contributors…with mud?
How will the man who made chemicals difficult…shed blood?
How’s our father supposed to be told?
