Larry Sepulvado: Music

Hurricane

writer: Larry Sepulvado

I evacuated Houston along with 2.5 million other people preceding Hurricane Rita. I headed to Dennis Challman's house outside Austin, Texas. Normally a 3.5 hour drive turned into 28 hours!! Along the way, it was like a true to life reality show out of 'Lord Of The Flies'. The next day I wrote this song.

HURRICANE

 

Bring on the wind, bring on the rain

Bring on another damn hurricane

Cause I can take the wind, I can take the rain

Long as I can take god's name in vain

 

Hurricane, hurricane 

Staring eye to eye with this hurricane

Hurricane, hurricane 

Take everything I got to my name

 

Thunder's rolling in, there's no way out

Sky blacker than the shadow of a doubt

Bulls eye dirty side, we are all about to die 

On a rooftop screaming for a helicopter ride

 

Chorus

 

Right before our eyes, water's on the rise

Grab up the kids run for the roof reach for the sky

It's raining waterlogged cajun cats and creole dogs

Human remains sucking their way down a sewage drain
