I wanted to explore office rage in a song. (Now there's a topic!) And this little number came to me. I saw the whole story laid out and just followed its logic to get the lyrics. "I walked up Cheney Street" is a sly reference to our ex-Vice President and his unfortunate hunting techniques. Throughout my career, I have worked for small and start-up companies who always seem to go through a "boom and bust" cycle. Needless to say I am no stranger to being laid off.
