In December 1999 I met @hellpellet, the flaming pill that would change my life.
A little more than a year later, in early 2001, my grandmother passed away, devastating me. A month after that I (along with about 101 other people) was laid off from my job.
I moved in with hellpellet across town and spent a while with my head deep in the sand. Then there was 9/11, and everything seemed to be out of control everywhere.
At about that time I wrote this song based on a riff that Mike and I had come up with earlier. It’s about being able to get through the day because hellpellet and I have each other for support when things get rough. It’s become an anthem for me, but it’s also a gift for her and anyone else who is just keeping their head above water.
Special thanks to Coach Hanna for delivering the drums that made the song come alive.
