A real place, all true. Dad drinks there, so no offence intended.


The Liquor Here will give you scars
You'll probably wind up dead
four score your cuts and scars
for from falling on your head

drinking from the barrel
while laid out on your back
they dont abide no quarrels
you will hear that shotgun crack

and the landladies tits
swing low and far
down at aristabano
mountain bar

Dancing with a dead dog
with demons on the roof
taste that fire and brimstone
while you're swinging in your noose

raise your glass
to bastards past
make sure you drink up fast
its casket ale
they brew out back
that drink could be your last

the lightning cracks and the thunder comes

Above the doors a twisted sign
all strangers will be bled
you should take it literally
cos the pigs are real well fed

they lit that broken poultice
and the smoke blacked out the room
there aint no need for daylight
when you're drinking to your doom

Drink down that whole cup forget completely
what happened this evening
its probably best you do
cos the memories that come back will be real hazy
but they will haunt you till you're done

First Ep recorded entirely live in 2 hours, representing the awful cacophony you'll see live.
