Sure, Tripod have made mistakes. They got regrets. Like that time they tried to steal a police station. But you earn your scars. Wisdom.

She's a nagging bitch, and she moves in without asking.

Years, they pass like night buses in the rain. Comes a time when you need to face the awful ding of the truth bell.

Ding! You got old, troubadour. A minute ago you were the scorching charismageddon of the new generation.

Now you're a luck-addled boozehound on the lam from a tax bill and a pregnant Nigerian princess.
And as he slouches in the battery glow of that out of town bus, with a gut full of homeward bound and only a suitcase full of disappointment to show for it, Gatesy toys with his glass eye and quietly lets himself wonder if maybe the dream really did come true. Maybe at last, through all the smoke and the fighting, at some point when he wasn't looking, he finally became a man.

In Men of Substance Tripod light a cigarette, pour a brandy, go get the gun that's taped behind the toilet cistern, and sing songs about how it all went down.
