Lyrics of the Day

This is one of my all-time favorites. It's from "Strike While The Iron Is Hot" by the Vigilantes of Love:

These days I feel so impotent
These days I'm so depressed
I got hate mail coming to my door
via Federal Express
Imagine people hating you so much they are willing to cough up $15-20 for FedEx because they can't wait a few days for regular USPS mail. I suppose it's a bit dated (from 1992) because nowadays people would send hate e-mail instantly instead. But just like writing a letter to your congressperson carries more weight than sending an e-mail (so I'm told), hate mail is more effective in hard copy, don't you think?

"Strike While The Iron Is Hot" is from the third Vigilantes of Love album, Killing Floor. The album has been released twice, the second version adding three live tracks (the second and third Amazon items below include the extra tracks).
