The new Dropkick Murphys album "The Warrior's Code" will be in stores in about 11 weeks. Each week up until the release we are going to post the lyrics of one of the songs. The first song on the album is called "Your Spirit's Alive" -

Quote:
YOUR SPIRIT'S ALIVE
(Written by Dropkick Murphys)

We are the ones who will never be broken
We are the ones who survive
This is the sound that brings us together
You are the one by our side

CHORUS:
And through it all & through it all, the spirit's alive
And through it all, your spirit's alive

You are the memory that lives on forever
The shadow that stands by our side
This is the sound that keeps us together
We are the ones who survive

CHORUS

Farewell my brother
You're off to the big rink in the sky
The god lord's between the pipes
And you've got Bavis and Ace on the wing

We are the ones who will never be broken
We are the ones who survive

CHORUS

This is the sound that brings us together
You are the one by our side

This song was written in memory of our dear friend Greg "Chickenman" Riley.

--------------------------------------

well, i'm psyched. but "i'm shipping up to boston" can still kiss my ass.

Holy crap!! I had no idea they had a new album coming out, that's fantastic news!! I think I could totally use a new album by them!

It's also good to see the first song from the new album isnt 'Walk Away Pt. 2'

no, i don't think it's walk away pt. 2. that would blow. it sounded more like bad religion (melody-wise) than anything else when they played it last month.


i'm curious to see what's going to be the deal with "the burden". i think the version on the tessie EP was recorded at WBCN or somewhere, so i'm wondering will it stay acoustic like that? is it going to be that version (cos that would be sort of weak)? on that note, what ever happened to the acoustic album plan?


oh, and the auld triangle. i want to hear how they tackle that.

it appears that the word wicked in "wicked sensitive" is an adjective

track 2
Quote:
THE WARRIOR’S CODE
(Written by Dropkick Murphys)

You're the fighter you've got the fire
The spirit of a warrior, the champion's heart
You fight for your life because the fighter never quits
You make the most of the hand you're dealt
Because the quitter never wins
No!

You were born to box in a city that's seen their share
Mello, Ryan, Carney, among them your photo proudly hangs there
Above the bar in the Gaelic Club
They tell the story of a throwback
With the heart of a lion
They salute your glory

It's another murderous night
Another left hook from hell
A bloody war on the boardwalk
And the kid from Lowell rises to the bell

CHORUS:
Micky
It's a warrior's code
Micky
He's got the warrior's soul

CHORUS

This song is about Massachusetts' own Micky Ward, a boxing legend who defines the heart and soul of the sport. He also happens to be the guy on the front cover…

You really should have put DKM or something about the name of the band in this thread title. Even I keep forgetting this has something to do with them. That being said, I want this album.

so this thing has been leaked all over the net. i'm downloading it, but 1) i can't get the new springsteen out of my cd player and 2) i don't know if i really want to hear it 2 whole freaking months before it's out.

i do know that i will be personally handing out beatings to kids who download it now and never actually go buy it. should be easy given the fucknuts that inhabit my town.




mods, if anyone reads this...could you do me a huge favor and change the title to "Dropkick Murphys - The Warriors Code"? please?

CAPTAIN KELLY'S KITCHEN (COURTIN' IN THE KITCHEN)
(Traditional, arrangement by Dropkick Murphys)

Come single guy and gal unto me pay attention
Don't ever fall in love
It's the devil's own invention
For once he fell in love with a maiden so bewitching
Miss Henrietta Bell down in Captain Kelly's kitchen

CHORUS:
With me toora loora la, me toora loora laddie
Me toora loora la and me toora loora laddie

At the age of seventeen I apprenticed to a grocer
Not far from Stephen's Green
Where Miss Henri' used to go sir
Her manners were sublime she set my heart a-twitchin'
When she invited me to a party in the kitchen

CHORUS

Sunday was the day that they were to have their flare-up
He dressed himself quite gay
I frizzed and oiled my hair up
The Captain had no wife and he had gone a-fishin'
She groped me on the stairs beneath the old man's kitchen

CHORUS

Her arms around my waist she slyly hinted marriage
When to the door in haste came Captain Kelly's carriage
Her eyes were full of hate and poison she was spittin'
The Captain kicked the door in and stormed into the kitchen

CHORUS

When the Captain came downstairs he saw my situation
In spite of all his prayers he was marched off to the station
For him they'd take no bail
To get home I was itchin'
He had to tell the tale how I came into the kitchen

CHORUS

I said she did invite me
But she gave flat denial
For assault she did indict me and I was sent for trial
She swore he'd robbed her house
In spite of all her screechin'
I got six months hard
For his courtin' in the kitchen

CHORUS

oh....and........

dropkick murphys - wicked sensitive crew

well it's all gone to hell, the wimps have gangs
pop-punk tough guys have neck tattoos?
well if you guys are hard, then i'd rather be soft
man, i gotta find me some seriously sensitive dudes!
hey! ho! hey!
you gotta shake hands with your feelings in the wicked sensitive crew
in pittsburg they called us close-minded
but we know that that's simply not true
yeah, we're touchy, feely sensitive guys
yeah i ain't ashamed i cried when mickey died in rocky II!
in sydney they misundertood us
they called us thugs and mean-spirited types
yeah we might not be swedish and we sure ain't vegan
but the thugs have posters on their bedoom walls of the dude from the darkness with a creepy meat suit zippered so low you can...oh god that's gross!
hey! ho! hey!
you gotta shake hands with your feelings in the wicked sensitive crew
i don't know nothing about no meat suit, but i'll tell you there's one town that's ahead of the times. man, they know what's up for sure. you see, it's home to the godfather of love, the bald little man who started it all, one teddy "huggy bear" etoll!
hey! ho! hey!
you gotta shake hands with your feelings
we gota big hug waiting for you
hey! ho! hey!
you gotta shake hands with your feelings in the wicked sensitive crew
^the wicked sensitive crew lyrics may not be 100% correct.

why apologize for making a new thread about this?

we can't have the same thread for one band forever.

the only problem is when people make really pointless generic bands over and over again that doesn't contain anything new inside.

i'm not really appologizing for starting the thread, i'm just noting that i know i'm posting another useless thread, of which 90% will be me talking to myself. i whine so much at the morons who start kasabian after kasabian thread, killers after killers thread even though multiple people post in those. i'm just acknowleding the fact that i know 90% of this thread will be me talking to myself. or whatever.

yeah, but ultimately, a lot of those people don't really count for anything anyway. you've been here for a long time and you've established yourself as a legitimate poster whom people respect.

you're allowed to make threads that make sense.

How was I not aware of this? my actual question isn't about the quality of the music so much as the production: How is it? Blackout was very, very polished. I think Sing Loud, Sing Proud had the best production for their sound.
