North​-​Easter

from A Trip Outside (Apr 2023) by Mint Biscuit

/

about

Originally released on "Side Hustle Biscuits" by Billy Rich and the Naked Flames (2022).

A chugging, Radiohead-inspired riff on the Ibanez, brings up lyrics about the weather, the North-East wind which brings the snow. However on closer inspection, this, again, could be about the Russian invasion of Ukraine. "You can't shoot a hurricane with a gun" - pity the poor Ukrainians who are trying to stop the North-Easter from blowing them away.

lyrics

North-Easter

You know the North-Easter brings the snow
Pack up your bags and go, go go go
You gotta fly, as far away as you can
It makes a meal of a hungry man

Take your belongings and your wife and kids by your side
Make sure they're buckled in for the ride
Get out of here, fortune never favoured the brave
Or you'll be spinning in an early grave

Summer's gone, dwindled into the past
Those autumn memories couldn't last
And just when you were searching
For the welcome of a better day
North-Easter gonna blow you away

Get out of bed, and get yourself on the run
You can't shoot a hurricane with a gun
Load up your truck, put your pedal to the floor
North-Easter doesn't want you here no more

And just when you were searching
For the welcome of a better day
North-Easter gonna blow you away

And just when you were searching
For the welcome of a better day
North-Easter gonna blow you away
And just when you were searching
For the welcome of a better day
North-Easter gonna blow you away
