"Mexican Dogs" as written by and Matthew Aveiro Jonathan Russell....
Lock all exit doors
Now I wanna be your dog
Tape winding up

Hot tide, rattling off
Say goodbye to the friends you brought
Run with us

Oh where I walk now. Where I walk now
When I talk now. When I talk now
Oh where I walk now. Where I walk now
When I talk. When I talk

Flashlights go out
Stars will light the way
Like Mexican dogs
Nobody gave us names

Tires burn in the dark
Mary's beads and the burning heart
Falling apart

High tide kicking sand
High tide we're all raised to win
To taste the salt

Coca-cola
Cost a quarter on my block
On my block
Coca-cola
Cost a quarter on my block
On my block

Flashlights go out
The stars will light the way
Like Mexican dogs
Nobody gave us names
Flash lights go out
The stars will light the way
Like Mexican dogs
Nobody gave us names

We will chase the bright lights till we're done
We'll chase the bright lights
We will chase the bright lights till we're done
We'll chase the bright lights

When I taste the salt
When I taste the salt
And I taste the salt
And I taste the salt
Mexican dogs

    My Interpretationcrazy..they're obviously talking about how mexicans cross the border, illegally.

    Mary's beads, rosary, which is used to pray. Burning heart, is the sacred heart tied to jesus and the Catholic religion. Majority of mexicans are catholic. They are praying the rosary that they will not get caught.
    Taste of salt, Salt water.
    The immigrants have to run from immigration like dogs basically.
    Mexico is a very poor country, hence coca cola a quarter.
    Mexicans have one dream and one dream only, to come to America, where they arent treated like animals and given no rights.
