"Here We Go" as written by and James/baker Scheffer....
Here we go
Leave it on the back burner
Take it to the dry town

I got the mean time slippin' down
The slide some uptight right wing,
Political homicide, do what you
Want, take what you will, take it in
Like a south paw, flip it on the grill
Bourgeoise, protocol
Bottoms up boys, this is the last call
Happy hour doesn't last too long
You know it never does
So I sit here on a bar stool looking at
The sky got a buck and a quarter
And a bucket full of rye
Don't step out of line you'll get time
In the brig don't yield to the mighty
You got your own dirt to dig


Me and my flea bag friends we ran
To have our own feast of Crispian
Murphy was there with number 22
They were got caught in the middle
Of a coup, you will
Lose me if I don't lose you

We haven't chosen
Anyone of you to condemn
So make your decision and choose you
Side or let us begin

Steeped in knowledge
I'll step from the board
Down to the speak easy
With my double-edged sword
You know the deal
You got to spin the wheel
I heard the heavens are full of sevens
But as a matter of fact
You know that cat suicide jack
He don't play like that
Truth is he don't really play at all

    General CommentI personally am offended by the comparison to the red hot chili peppers, because dispatch is so much ridiculously better than them. The live version on All Points Bulletin is so damn good, the saxophone is so fantastic. If you think the version on Bang Bang makes you want to dance listen to the live one.

    General CommentOk, I think I got a handle on this one. Basically, it's about the bootleggers during the 1920's era of prohibtion America. The chorus references the dry (liquor-free) towns where bootleggers would smuggle in moonshine and the like. Also, speak easies are mentioned in one of the later verses. Speak easies were the underground bars and pubs that would serve alcohol after the bootleggers smuggled it in. I think this song just talks about the risks involved as the bootleggers do eventually get caught ("so you take me away, so you take me away.")

    General CommentHOLY SHIT!!! Holy shit! FuzzyPuppy, you have made this song more clear for me than i ever dreamed! THANK YOU!!!

    You're definitely right though, because:
    I don't know why they'd leave something "on the back burner" [to hold off on something], but they'd take "it" to the "dry town"... Meaning, they'd take the alcohol to the town that's "dry" of alcohol!
    Plus, the lines:
    "Bottoms up boys that this is the last call
    ["Cheers" your drinks! Last call for booze!]
    happy hour doesn't last too long
    you know it never does"
    [They can't serve it for a long period, lest they get arrested.]
    "don't step out of line you'll get time
    in the brig........."
    [Don't step out of the safety of the pub with your drink, or they'll arrest you?]
    Man, i always knew Chad like to write about historical stuff, but this is amazing! I've listened to this song for YEARS! [It was my first fav. Dispatch song!] But now when i listen to it, it'll take on a whole new meaning!

    General CommentWell, i´ve sent an e-mail to Chad asking about this song, and the answer is that it really is about the 1920 prohibition era, and has to do with a call to the workers to join together and rise up against opression. Also, the song references Salinger's "Catcher in the rye" an Shakespear's "Henry V". Well, i´m reading "catcher in the rye" by now, and i´m intended to read Henry V as soon as possible... I'm using this song in a college work, and i´m searching about it's story. I´m using all your comments too!!! Thank you!!
