"Jack The Ripper" as written by Steven Morrissey and Martin James Boorer....
Oh, you look so tired
Mouth slack and wide
Ill-housed and ill-advised
Your face is as clean
As your life has been, so

Crash into my arms
I want you
You don't agree
But you don't refuse
I know you

And I know a place
Where no one is likely to pass
You don't care if it's late
And, you don't care if you're lost

And oh, you look so tired
But tonight you presume too much
Too much, too much
And if it's the last thing I ever do
I'm gonna get you

Crash into my arms
I want you
You don't agree
But you don't refuse
I know you
[2x]

    General CommentFour Things:

    1-Yes, Morrissey cover. Not a Smiths cover, don't be mistakened.

    2-Pretty nice cover too, didn't think Davey could pull it off.

    3-The My Chemical Romance cover SUCKED.

    4-There are two versions of this song: live and studio. They covered the studio version.

    General CommentThis is a Smiths cover. One of my favorite Smiths songs. One of my favorite songs in general, actually. That's awesome that AFI covered it. I gotta hear this!

    ...Alright so I'm downloading it now :p. They did SUCH a good job. Davey sounds different though...I didn't recognize his voice at first.

    God I love this song.

    General Commentbeautiful song.

    1 tiny bit:
    Oh, you look so tired
    Mouth slack and wide
    Ill-housed and ill-advised
    Your face is as MEAN
    As your life has been

    General CommentThis is an awesome song. I think Davey does other bands songs better than they do. He is a bad ass like that.
