|The New Pornographers – Letter from an Occupant Lyrics||8 years ago|
I'm thinking this song is about the oil crunch.
The eventual downfall and bill come from running out of oil. The seventies refers to the last oil crisis in the 70's. You traded me away is about oil prices.
"Not a letter from an occupant (of Earth)" means "Not another complaint from an eco-nut."
"Tune you are humming" refers to driving hummers.
