If you listen closely I'm pretty sure the lyric at the end is "Now your pretty horses run wild and free"

I really think the "talking snow" line is about her reminiscing about "home"/the east coast with people in LA.

This. Also change it to "pretty horses run" in the OP, por favor...

While I still stand by thinking that they are referring to the East Coast - It's worth mentioning that the main character in Blow has a speech in the end of the movie where he says "There are no more white horses or pretty ladies at my door." That line could be referring this.

when i hear "i'm talking snow for days with your friends in LA, have mercy..." i can't help but think of cocaine. she's gone, finding a lover better than him, doing drugs and living it up with her friends in LA, but have mercy...it may seem pretty and he may be suffering now but there will come a day when her fun will end and everything will be okay for him. it's a bit of a stretch but something worth considering

My favorite song on the album, and it was only on the Deluxe. So weird. Kind of like "Our Father's Sons" being a B-Side of The '59 sound. That's a crazy good song and it got left out in the cold.

This, times a million. If we had a Q&A at the preshows I attended, my question/request would have been "Any chance we'll ever hear OFS or Teenage Rebellion live?".

In-studios with radio stations excluded, OFS has been played live 6x and TR never according to setlist.fm. Sad

Sorry to hijack the Have Mercy convo...

Our Father's Sons was awesome opening up the encore slot at the Convention Hall show back in 2011.
