New Video For the Song: Lot’s Wife

In the Bible, the wife of Lot is a figure first mentioned in Genesis 19. The Book of Genesis describes how she became a pillar of salt after she looked back at Sodom. She is called “Ado” or Ildith or “Edith” in some Jewish traditions, but is not named in the Bible. She is also referred to in the New Testament at Luke 17:32. – Wikapedia

I’ve had this idea for a while after noticing the incredible amount of very average looking churches in and about the suburban neighborhoods of Shawnee and Lenexa, Kansas. The second half of the video is an inspired homage to my favorite dancer, Nan, as well as some of the amazing local Kansas City burlesque that I’ve been lucky enough to witness at the now defunct Weirdo Wednesday’s Supper Club at Davey’s Uptown Ramblers Club in KC, MO. A special thanks goes to Damien Weber for the public domain footage hookup. -MMM

How many licks does it take to get to the middle of the map
Life is different when you’re always on the inside
Always close to the bone.
We hold the meat together.
We slow cook it and smother it in sacrifice sauce
We let the dogs out and make them police our junk yards
We tie them up the way we wish to be tied
We give them space
Sometimes curse them for wanting to step foot in ours
We praise them for loving us
The kind of love we crave
We learn the hard way
The middle one is not always the center of attention
Sometimes the center is a hole
But that is where the gift happens
That is where we learn to make our own fun.
When you’re in the middle of the map every step is one step away from the center
But today we dance in circles and celebrate ourselves
With music and madness and the meat of our love
