Mark Foley was right - there are no ghosts in this town, there is not reason to fear, there are no obstacles here
Mark Foley was right - there are no barriers for medicine
Mark Foley was right - there are no barriers for shame

Audience please!
Every minute matters!

All he ever wanted was a detonator

Colin is a pussy, a very pretty pussy
Colin is a pussy, a very pretty pussy cat
Colin is a wide-eyed wanton hopped-up
Hole of hail and hate
Felt him slip down the back of my leg
Found his hair by the castanets
Made him mad with the silence
Made him sick with the constant calm
Heard him sigh in the dead of the night
It's times like these make him wish I'd fail

    General CommentMy take on this song is that it is about frustration of the status quo, lack of a higher objective in life or feeling purposeless and not being able to find or achieve something better.

    Generally being pissed off at nothing much doing.

    General CommentMark Foley was a Republican politician in the US who was removed from office after sending sexually explicit emails to teenage boy.

    Anyway. As with Mclusky, these guys don't necessarily have anything deep behind their lyrics. I think they just put words and lines next to each other and see what happens. The last few lines seem to be making fun of someone named Colin, possibly a spurned gay lover of the speaker of the song. Still, I wouldn't put money on any interpretation of this band's lyrics lol

    General CommentOne of my favourites by these guys.
    I'm so glad there is a fresh band that just play straight up rock! I hate all these silly little subgenres, they are getting ridiculous. This band is doing something groundbreaking just by simply going back to the roots.
