    people who don’t like the music most likely feel the same way about the Hansen Brothers as I do about Tom Waits.

    @DeliciousWheel Hell yeah. The finest lead guitar work I’ve ever heard, and the rhythm has such a dirty precision to it. All hail Mark Ribot…

    Whenever I hear this song I can’t help but think of that scene from Miller’s Crossing where they unload rounds into a building and the bartender spills out into the street, staggering through the smoke with a white bar rag waving desperately over his head. Of course, they shoot him too.

    This song is about war in the American psyche, raise the f**king flag and kick some ass

    I like the inversion of the literal meaning you’ve suggested. Just because someone is attacking doesn’t mean they haven’t already surrendered in another way.

    @holtzermann17 you see it literally?
    I know it can be interpreted as war. And when you see the lyrics by themselves. Sure, but its a song, and when I listen to the music its about what I described shortly
