Liner Notes: 

Jerry Here: This is something Jimmy and I tweaked the lyrics a couple days ago to use in 5090. This demo kicked my butt...make no mistake. I had no idea I was signing up to be a music producer this year. Next thing I know I'm deep into Ableton Live and Battery 3 drums and phase shifting guitars and even raw vocals. Thanks for listening.

Lyrics: 

We Got Hit By Lightning

Lightning just hit our tree outside
Scared all of us who were inside
The tree caught fire and fell on the house
Grab the kids and grabbed my spouse
Out of the house and into the car
We didn't have to drive very far
Call 911 and they said stay home
Fire department on the way you're not alone

Chorus
We got hit by lightning
It was quite frightening
We got hit by lightning
Get out of the house is the right thing

The tree almost got us that time
Now it's too difficult to hide
I can see another storm cloud
And branches fall to the ground
Watching for tornado very close
The house went up like burnt toast
Fire truck came and put out the fire
Our luck was bad today and future looks dire

Bridge
We have no place to go
The lightning burned our house down
Took all of our clothes and money too
Is there emergency shelter?
Damn friggin storm



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Wow - what a compelling dark story told with a great rock beat and vocal delivery. The guitar delivers a wonderful rock feel and the instrumental bridge shortly after the 2 min mark is phenomenal! Wow! The production on this is perfect. Strong song!
