Van muller

Van Morrison's Saint Dominic's Preview has long been one of Wide Right, No Goal's favorite albums. But today (thanks, Mr. iPod) we puzzled anew over these enigmatic lines in the title track:

And it's a long way to Buffalo
A long way to Belfast City too
And I'm hoping the choice won't blow the hoist
'cause this town, they bit off more than they can chew

Anyone know what this might mean? (Not just the Buffalo/Belfast pairing—what does it mean to blow a hoist, exactly?)
