The Rebel Black Dot Song of the Day: SKAfter Party

Slow Gherkin, "Trapped Like Rats in Myers Flats" from Shed Some Skin (The Last Angry Man)

Skammentary: So, Less Than Jake doesn't have a monopoly on songs about being stuck in place.
"They'll ask you which way to go,
Ask which sins to bear,
I'll tell you I don't know,
Our hearts are full of woe!

"Our heads are full of trash,
We better stop to get some gas,
(unintelligible) in the flats,
We're trapped like rats in Myers Flats…

"You know, I haven't slept in days,
But I never felt this giddy before,
I finish off another wounded soldier
And I pass out on the floor…"
