Explosion (Behind Me)?

For the Action Pact, here’s a song about how the hero walks slowly unflinching from a ginormous explosion.

Lyrics

Was there an explosion behind me
Because I Didn’t notice
I Casually walk away from
Whatever Exploded
Was there an explosion behind me
Because I Didn’t notice
I Casually walk away from
Whatever Exploded

I leave a trail of gasoline behind me
And then I light a match
It doesn’t matter if it’s in a warehouse full of bad guys
That I’m trying to catch
They try to get me, they’ll never get me though
I just walk out the front door real slow
Everything goes boom boom boom
Whenever I leave the room

Was there an explosion behind me
Because I Didn’t notice
I Casually walk away from
Whatever Exploded
Was there an explosion behind me
Because I Didn’t notice

Down to the Wire

One more song for the Action Pact EP project that pays homage to 80s action movies and 80s rock music. This installment is about how in every movie or TV show back in the day scene where the hero had to diffuse a bomb of some sort by cutting a wire of a particular color is attached to a time bomb. That’s the genesis of this song. But I also wanted to add a little rock saxophone to the mix.

You’re welcome.

Lyrics

Now it’s come
Down to the wire
Cut the right one
Before the time expires
Yellow wire, black wire
Blue Wire, Red Wire
Cut the right one
Or you’ll set the world on fire

Some people just wanna see the world burn
But they can never win, when will they learn

They put a timebomb – In a hospital elevator
Only way to save the day is disconnect the detonator
Not my specialty but I’m the man on the job
Put me on the phone – with that slob from the bomb squad
Don’t have time to put on a padded armor suit
If I make it out of this alive – I’ll find somebody to shoot
Cut the wires with my teeth – now Im holding my breath
I stopped he timer with only one minute left

Some people just wanna see the world burn
But they can never win, when will they learn

Now it’s come
Down to the wire
Cut the right one
Before the time expires
Yellow wire, black wire
Blue Wire, Red Wire
Cut the right one
Or you’ll set the world on fire

Now it’s come
Down to the wire

DOwn to the Wire

Getaway

Continuing on with the hit parade of my tribute album to 80s Rock music and 80s Action Movie cliches and tropes, his time it’s an ode to the mandatory car chase in pretty much every action movie ever. I hope to here it in a car commercial one day, or maybe in a movie that’s just a little too on the nose.

Lyrics

The Crooks want to get away
Gotta have a chase on the highway
Getaway Getaway, They wanna getaway
Getaway Getawy, Won’t let ’em getaway

Robbers on the highway
they push the petal to the Red LIne
Mess around with me
you get a permanent Bed Time
Smashing through the barricades
and crashing into Squad Cars
Thought they’d getaway,
but really they never got far
Jumping over ramps
at maximum acceleration
What they didn’t count on
was my determination
I Bumped into their backside
they spun out of control
Mess with the law
then you got to pay the toll

The Crooks want to get away
Gotta have a chase on the highway
Getaway Getaway, They wanna getaway
Getaway Getawy, Won’t let ’em getaway
The Crooks want to get away
Gotta have a chase on the highway
Getaway Getaway, They wanna getaway
Getaway Getawy, Won’t let ’em getaway
Getaway Getaway, They wanna getaway
Getaway Getawy, Won’t let ’em getaway
