about

I also began writing this song during the same snowed-in week. But from a different cabin, before the pipes froze. You ever get a word stuck in your craw? How many layers to "unannounced"? It felt done to me, but Janet thought there might be more. I poked around for a week and landed on that heavy riff that takes the song out. She was right. When Jer and Kris re-enter, the huge sound makes me grin. Oh, and Kris' opening bass melody under the first verse is so incredible and so characteristic of her talent for melody. What??

lyrics

O you battled stay good natured
Crush your bad ones you’re still good, still good
And you push on the wheel for the sake of the work
On the chance you’ll arrive unannounced

O climb on top so good looking
Too bad nothing is what you’re pushing
You know down there nothing’s down there, how could there be?
You know down there, there’s no truth down there
But you hope we won’t know if it goes unannounced

Give it up, baby, throw it back
Make a fuss, baby, break a sweat
