we've started playing this song live recently. like marianne it was a group effort to create and also like marianne it is one of my favorite songs. i've been wanting you use the song title for a long time to write a dreamy pop song about Morrissey and latino gangsters but as i worked on it i happened to notice a triangle of synchronicity take shape around the Smiths, Cholos, and East of Eden so it ended up being about all three.
yes i intentionally stole some Smiths lyrics but they are references to those songs and besides, Morrissey stole "(prison name), here we come" from a movie so i can steal it too.
it will probably change a bit by the time it gets released but i like this version and chris and i were talking about how our myspace page was a bit behind and needed some new blood.
