Inspired by something said by a member of Ithaca's Candy Pants on a certain crazy News Years eve many years ago.
I came up with this riff one night when I was jamming with Kelly and Stahl. During the recording Matt suggested we make the chorus really poppy and the verse more raw and we kinda ran with that idea. The song made pop punk song of the day on Garageband.
I was obsessed with Dinosaurs as a kid. Then I wrote this song about Dinosaurs as a cultural metaphor.
I wrote this shortly before I moved back East. It was a big transition at a time when I felt pretty lost and I think that is reflected in the lyrical content. I often mix together my own story with other people's stories when I write and this was the first time I really did that. I demoed this song using a loop of a slowed down drum intro to an REM song and a kid's xylophone I bought on the street. For this recording we mimicked that by looping Matt's drum parts and throwing in some backwards stuff and added a real glockenspiel.
