A reader sent over a link to this brand-new (the group's website says it was released on Sept. 10) song about Alameda.
It's called Alameda: Isle of Zombies.
And, while I am a reasonably astute analyzer of lyrics, I can't really figure out the meaning. Except that maybe it's saying we're zombies here.
You can take a listen, but there's this:
Dark is the night, dark is the Bay
Dark are the ferries that take you away
Off to the island, off to the island of zombies
You were living in the mission for a year or two
but the lure of easy parking was calling to you
Just like a call, just like a call from your mommy
You took the ferry, took the ferry and you became a zombie
