SANTERIA - "If I could find that heina and that Sancho that she'd found
Well I'd pop a cap in sancho and I'd slap her down"
" He best go run and hide
Daddy's got a new .45
And I won't think twice
To stick that barrel straight down sancho's throat
Believe me when I say that I got something for his punk-ass"

GET READY - "And when security police force want to arrive
Don't try to run, don't try to hide
Just pull out the .9 pop in the clip
And let one slip into these crazy fools"

The Fall – Bremen Nacht Lyrics 11 years ago
Mark E Smith, interview in Sounds ("The Bug.Eyed Pop Goblin"; 2 January, 1988):
"I'd been to Bremen twice before on tours. The first time I just puked my ring up all day
spewing up this black liquid. When I went back there this time I just went crazy. The gig had a
really low steel roof - it was this German polytechnic with steel everywhere, metal shutters on
the windows whichmade it real claustrophobic. The dressing-room was like a fucking gas chamber, man.
We go out and play and I'm just feeling worse and worse. I just felt like a different person, I was
snapping at everyone....In the morning I had all these handprints on my leg, bruises from the inside
that looked like a child's handprints. What I've settled on at the moment - everybody says it must
be the Nazis, they must have killed somebody - is that it was probably the firebombing in the
Second World War and it was like an air-raid shelter that had been bombed."

NOFX – Jaundiced Eye Lyrics 11 years ago
jaundiced eyes are a yellowing of the whites of the eyes usually an indication of hepatitis

"It was once believed persons suffering from the medical condition jaundice saw everything as yellow. By extension, the jaundiced eye came to mean a prejudiced view, usually rather negative or critical. Alexander Pope, in "An Essay on Criticism" (1711), wrote: “All seems infected that the infected spy, As all looks yellow to the jaundiced eye" (wikipedia)

The Decemberists – The Mariner's Revenge Song Lyrics 11 years ago
this song reminds me of Stanley Kubrick's 'Barry lyndon'(loosely based on the novel by William Makepeace Thackeray).

the lines below pertain to the film perfectly

"You may not remember me
I was a child of three
And you, a lad of eighteen
But I remember you
And I will relate to you
How our histories interweave

At the time you were a rake and a roustabout
Spending all your money on the whores and hounds, oh oh

You had a charming air
All cheap and debonair
My widowed mother found so sweet
And so she took you in
Her sheets still warm with him
Now filled with filth and foul disease

As time wore on you proved a debt-ridden drunken mess
Leaving my mother a poor consumptive wretch, oh oh

And then you disappeared
Your gambling arrears
The only thing you left behind
And then the magistrate
Reclaimed our small estate
And my poor mother lost her mind"

The rest of the song would be a fitting sequel

Dropkick Murphys – Finnegan's Wake Lyrics 12 years ago
by the way Kingston Trio didn't write Charlie on the M.T.A.", it was written in 1948 by Jacqueline Steiner and Bess Lomax Hawes and it was based on a much older song called "The Ship That Never Returned" (1865), about a ship that left a harbor and never came back -the ship didn't have enough funds to dock into any of the harbors on the East Coast and so kept looking for a place to dock forever and ever. That song also inspired "The Wreck of The Old 97" - sorry for going off topic
