about

Reid and I have been instructors and audio engineers at Stage Volume Entertainment for several years (shout out to Tim). After finishing lessons, we would often get into long conversations while shutting down the store. Since both of us have dedicated our lives to teaching, studying, writing, gigging and performing music, there were consistent topics that came up. What we've been working on, what gigs we had that week, frustrations of this and that, successes that we've had, etc.

After him telling me about beats he'd been creating, he emailed me a couple of them. During the beginning of the COVID-19 quarantine, I wrote lyrics to his instrumental entitled "30 Minute Meltdown." Using the title as a guide for content, this song almost wrote itself. At the time, I'd been cooped up for months. Guess I needed to release some frustration?

lyrics

INTRO
can't quite get the taste outta my mouth
can't quite get the taste outta my mouth
can't quite get the taste outta my mouth

CHORUS
can't quite get the taste outta my mouth
gargled with gasoline, tried to burn it all out
fuel saturated everything in my house
wanna discuss the flames?  have a seat on my couch
can't quite get the taste outta my mouth
gargled with gasoline, tried to burn it all out
fuel saturated everything in my house
wanna discuss the flames?

POST-CHORUS
meltdown
meltdown...30 minute
meltdown...30 minute, 30 minute mini
meltdown...meltdown

VERSE
outside - calm and collected
inside - a dom that's neglected
been too long, my perspective
flipped upside down and changed directions
ready to scream out my objective
kindness no longer my intention
my mind used as a weapon
tie you down, gag you, and teach you a lesson
...let me remind you all, this is my therapy
...if you're not on my side, then don't pretend to be
...drawing a line in the sand and remembering
...who can be trusted, it's very unsettling
you are a gnat, a fly, a flea
your actions are reminding me
constantly bothering everyone 'round you
I'm no longer wasting my energy
you are a brat designed to be
nothing more than prey to eat
constantly bothering everyone 'round you
I'm thinking of you as my enemy

CHORUS
finally got the taste outta my mouth
gasoline hurt and burned it all out
fire cleansed every little thing in my house
no more discussion cause the flames have been doused
finally got the taste outta my mouth
gasoline hurt and burned it all out
fire cleansed every little thing in my house
no more discussion cause the flames have been doused

POST-CHORUS
meltdown
meltdown...30 minute
meltdown...30 minute, 30 minute mini
meltdown...meltdownmeltdown
meltdown...30 minute
meltdown...30 minute, 30 minute mini
meltdown...calm down
