"American Leather" as written by and Darby Crash....
Looking for a way out
I put my foot out of line
Really like to break-out
I feel so confined

American leather
The poinsous members
Not alone-not together
Their American leather

Saw you on a dark road
Brought myself along
Got a sense of conflict
But I know what's wrong

[Chorus]

[Middle]

[Chorus]

I know that kinda feeling
So I built my place up high
But you'll never find me kneeling
Cause I'm too occupied

[Chorus]

    General CommentPersonally I think Darby might've actually been commented on the Gay S&M Leather scene. As a gay male, he was probably aware of this subculture-- in fact, considering he contributed a song, "Lion's Share" to the soundtrack of a movie ABOUT leathermen (cruising), he HAD to have known what it was. I think this song might be about Darby expressing his attraction to Leather/S&M and his repulsion from it at the same time.

    General CommentI think its about peer pressure etc.

    "Looking for a way out / I put my foot out of line / Really like to break out / I feel so confined"

    The first verse is Darby saying how hard it is to break out and do something new when you feel intimidated by your friends.

    No idea about the chorus.

    "Saw you on a dark road / Brought myself along / Got a sense of conflict / But i know what's wrong"

    Practically means "I saw you on a road and thought I'd walk with you. I felt a little bit of tension in the air, but I know whats wrong with you." Don't know what it means though.

    "I know that kinda feeling / So i built my place up high / But you'll never find me kneeling / Cause i'm too occupied"

    Darby is saying that he knows he is an idol, but he's also saying that he will never idolize someone.
