Bringing you all the Tom Waits news since 2004
I'd prefered this Road to Peace to the Day After Tomorrow... must be a Real Gone Outtake, or so something, because Tom is into Politicla intentions ever since Mule variations...
oh come on man! are you serious? outtake from real gone? listen to the lyrics, it's about the present situation in our world, the whole riff about "israel attacking hamas in an old mans war" deal. its an incredible track, and i surely can't wait to own that album, and this apparent DVD the days they come out!
Sorry for jumping into this so late.The situation with Palestine and Israel has been going on since well before Real Gone came out. The lyric about it being an old man's war alludes to the fact that it's been going on for decades. But the song specifically states that Bush is "hungry for reelection" which places it in the 2000-2004 time frame. Real Gone came out in 2004. So while it may not be a Real Gone outtake or whatever, it was almost certainly written in that time frame, or with that time frame in mind.
