Interpretations:The Mexican Drill

From This Might Be A Wiki

The Mexican Drill is a group of film buffs that meets in the catacombs under Paris. They tunnel in, set up a small theater, tap the city electricity, and show films.

Their moveable theater set-up was recently discovered again, and when the authorities came back, everything had been removed and a note left for them: "Don't try and find us. - The Mexican Drill." Or something like that. The song is about the Mexican Drill. ~Christina Miller, June 2007


This song will always be about a zombie outbreak to me, or at least a fight against the undead.

The music makes me think of an assault rifle. Slow, I realize, but maybe it's set to two-shot burst? Anyway, they find a spot and fight for a while, then have to run as the undead swell in numbers. They fall back to a better position, and fight again. The whispered tone and air of secrecy that the song projects just leads me to believe that on a global scale, the undead are winning.
