I watched the Gaslight Anthem’s Hurricane Sandy video this morning. Someone commented on YouTube and pointed out that the first line is Orphans is 

"Goodbye circus wheel, may you rest along the sea."

I bet Brian never thought that line would be so literal. I know what he meant when writing it but now it kind of has a whole other meaning. So sad.

Example: Orphans

"And I can feel it in my aging bones, how the sound of the rain mixes up into the fountains where I drank my heroes blood. So I left you to find my very own hat full of rain."

This has always been one of my favorite lines but just the way he sings it!! 

I think all of this is because American Slang, in it’s entirety, has become a part of me.
