Let's go!

It's 3 o'clock at the Triple Rock, another round of watching Paddy talk
It's where you wanna get snowed in when you get
Snowed in, outside it's 10 below, is it day or night, we don't care or know
What we know is that we don't wanna be
Anywhere but here, please don't make us leave
When in Minnesota and you got a drinking quota

I'm seeing double at the Triple Rock, we're still here watching Paddy talk
Then undress, then get out the duct tape
The one question still remains, how much more art can we take?
I'll let you know when the medication wears off

I'm a religious drunk and this is where I pray
The church of alcoholics can't break up the congregation
Give us air to breathe, through carbonation
We are at liquor church, genuflecting on barstools
We're praying that the taps will keep the holy water flowing
Key kicks of communion, then a long night of confessions
Coming home after noon seems to raise a lot of questions
When in Minnesota and you got a drinking quota

    General CommentObviously a song about the Triple Rock Social Club in Minneapolis. The 'Paddy' referenced in the song is Patrick Costello, lead singer of Dillinger Four and part-owner(?) of the T-Rock.

    The 'How Much Art Can You Take?' line is a reference to a tattoo that Paddy has on his chest. He has a big script on his chest that says 'How Much Art Can You Take?"

    General Comment"It's about Drink and Drugs and religion"

    I don't think it's so much about religion as it is that he started using religion as a metaphor for drinking. "I'm a religious drunk/and this is where I pray." "Keep the holy water flowing" is more about "keep the drinks coming" than it is blessing someone. And "The church of alcoholics/can't break up the congregation" is about how they're not changing their lifestyle anytime soon. "a long night of confessions" is about how much freer most people get when influenced by alcohol--often giving away secrets they wouldn't otherwise.

    Anyway, I really love the song for that verse, I love the use of metaphors in it.

    Also, I could imagine somebody parodying the song as "Seeing Triple at the Doubletree," haha.

    General Commenta lot of these lyrics are wrong so I will paste the correct ones here:

    It's 3 o'clock at the Triple Rock, another round of watching Paddy talk
    It's where you wanna get snowed in when you get
    Snowed in, outside it's 10 below, is it day or night, we don't care or know
    What we know is that we don't wanna be
    Anywhere but here, please don't make us leave
    When in Minnesota and you got a drinking quota

    I'm seeing double at the Triple Rock, we're still here watching Paddy talk
    Then undress, then get out the duct tape
    The one question still remains, how much more art can we take?
    I'll let you know when the medication wears off

    I'm a religious drunk and this is where I pray
    The church of alcoholics can't break up the congregation
    Give us air to breathe, through carbonation
    We are at liquor church, genuflecting on barstools
    We're praying that the taps will keep the holy water flowing
    Key kicks of communion, then a long night of confessions
    Coming home after noon seems to raise a lot of questions
