(No More) Paddy's Lament

  • Guitarist Dennis Casey was asked by FasterLouder how recording the album in Ireland affected the band. He replied: "The stories and the ideas are different. There's a song on there called No More Patty's Lament and it's sort of like a reply to 'Drunken Lullabies' from our 2002 album, which is about how we keep fighting each other, and beating each other, and killing each other. 'No More Patty's Lament' is about how there's peace in Ireland now and prosperity and it's a different place."
