I've just started listening to the Dropkicks in the last little while, and I like them so far. They're coming to the University of Calgary on Halloween, I'm thinking of picking up a ticket later this week. Are they any good live?

One of my favorite lines so far is from Never Alone:

Don't need no gang to watch my ass
Just loyal friendship and a pint of Bass

OH man they're awesome live just go to the show you'll see I'm headed to their show in Orlando in about a week I'll let you know how that goes

As for lyrics I have to say from "curse of a fallen soul"

Many bow their heads for this man they know so well,
With solemn thoughts they'll drink and drug for a resurrection.
(Facing death we fear no danger)
While Mothers shed their tears through a vail of desperation
These fiends of a vicious breed raise holy hell.

The whole song really. Why? Reminds me of a good friend who was taken before his time. I still tilt my glass to him after every beer.

And so the story's told of a hearty group of men it's a tale of their triumphs and their woes.
Be it raids and melees ancient or the modern worker's struggle
that inspires men to stand up for their rights.
And should we fall down by the wayside in this ever-changing world
we can look back to these heroes of our past.
With their staunch determination and ferocious iron will,
no tyranny would quell them in their task.

It's an age-old situation with an ever-present message:
that time and tide waiteth for no man.
So without fear of confrontation of the consequence of outcome,
it's for freedom and for happiness they toiled.
An in looking to the future,
we can see a better place where we can shake the yoke of tyranny for all.
It's been paved by generations who have gone now to their rest.
It's just remembrance of their dignity we ask.

So come on rally round this brave and valiant cause with tradition, pride, and honor at its core.
With swords drawn to defend stood stood these noble-hearted men Faugh-an-ballagh,
clear the way, me boys!!

Under perilous conditions with small hope of success they left behind the lives that they once led
and by virtue of their fortitude and single-minded strength
they cleared the way for the people of today
so when we think back to our ancestors respectfully we hark
and thank the men whose struggle broke the chain it's a long road up ahead of us
let's forge on while we're strong and leave our mark of honor once again

So the story has been told and it comes now to an end.
It's setting any era, any land.
When abusive tyrants force the hands of matters great or small,
it inpires men to stand up for their rights.

i've seen street corner preachers spending discharge pay
between periods of getting stiff
and happy tipplers singing songs of discontentment
with each and every passing sip
from the bookmaker's clerk on the rowdy racing circuit
known as tom sharkey's brawling bar
to the tenders at the pubs and illegal sporting clubs
in this town i call my home
you see, i come from a family
who more or less traditionally
sends its boys off to serve uncle sam
"obey your orders and protect your country"
said this father to his disheartened son
i've traveled over seas, seen forks in the road
from ravena to the pubs near cunard pier
but the things weren't the same,
as the place where i became,
a man in this town i call my home.

I've lost all the time that I have in this world
I spent it unwisely. Unwisely you see
And I can't get it back
And I can't move forward
I'm broke and I'm empty
It's over for me

If I could undo all the wrongs that I've caused
Fall to my knees pray for witness and just
But I'm just a fool
A fool driven to dust
And the world ain't gonna change for me

So give me one more chance to prove these problems and frustrations
are just manifesting memories we're destined to repeat
A second chance to prove I know right from wrong
I swear I'll do things different but can't promise to be strong

Who's gonna save us from this lonely picket line? Ten years of service and we're still not worth your time.
