Glenn,
The boys are definitely gonna fight. And, given that the boys are gonna fight if they want to (and they totally want to), you better let 'em. Just sayin'.

Though the hemophiliac theory is pretty awesome too.

Say, you heard that Mountain Goats cover (live on German radio) that segues into an R Kelly ("Ignition Remix") cover? It's pretty dope. That is, if you like nasal-y white guys accompanied by aggressive (and aggressively simple) acoustic guitar strumming; if that sounds hellish, I understand. BUT: If you desire a listen, here's a link --

There's another Thin Lizzy philosophical quandary that's always driven me nuts, in "Jailbreak":

"Tonight, there's gonna be a jailbreak/Somewhere in this town ..."

I know that Phil's trying to be conspiratorial, and all secretive about his friend's plans, but isn't it logical to assume that the Jailbreak will occur, oh, I don't know, somewhere near the jail?

Nothing confouned me more in Phil Lynott's lyrics than the opening verses to Dancin' in the Moonlight:

"When I passed you in the doorway
You took me with a glance
I should have took that last bus home
But I asked you for a dance

Now we go steady to the pictures
I always get chocolate stains on my pants
My father he's going crazy
Say's I'm living in a trance"

So, the guy is so smitten with this new girl, that he can't help from defecating on himself during movie dates? I mean, how many chicks are willing to put up with something like that? I don't think the father is the one who's crazy here.

@James

Best iPod moment ever: "Jailbreak" followed immediately by Nick Cave's cover of "There's No Night Out at the Jail".

Look, given that Ireland's most notable rock star was a black man, I'm willing to believe that somewhere on that lovely Emerald Isle there is at least ONE bar and grill named "Dino's." Besides, since the original title of this immortal tune was to be "GI Joe's Back In Town," we can assume the setting is somewhere in the U.S.A.


As to the "Jailbreak" conundrum -- The action described in that song takes place in an enclosed prison community. That's right: the whole TOWN is one big prison. Once this is understood, it's entirely reasonable that only those apprised of the plot would know exactly WHERE the jailbreak would occur.


As to "Dancin' in the Moonlight" -- the chocolate stains adverted to were the result of untidy people who had occupied the seats BEFORE Philo and his inamorata arrived.


Are there any other Lynott lyrics I can elucidate, seeing that I have nothing else clamoring for my time and attention?
