THE REALLY GOOD POT ROAST - Emergency Cord
OK. We’re shifting gears from the instrumental electronica stuff we did for the Trevor Project (The wait is killing me). This track is from our album, Serious as a Heart Attack. The album is available on iTunes and AmazonMP3. All proceeds will be donated to the American Heart Association.
Lyric writing is always tough for me. I have a little journal I carry in my bag just in case I get an inspiration while I’m on the road. 85% of the lyrics in that book will never see the light of day, nor should they, but every once in a while something good happens.
I wrote these lyrics on the subway home from work. I’ve always wonder what the emergency cord is for since the signs tell you never to pull it, even if there’s a fire or a medical emergency. Mark and I both liked the lyrics, but had a hard time putting together music that worked. This song was the last track on the album to be finalized despite being one of the first tracks we started.
