'Detonator' is Rusty Shipp's most 'surf rock' song to date, pulling ingredients right out of the 60’s craze like Beach Boys harmonies, Dick Dale’s reverb-drenched guitar sound and a surf organ. Lyrically, this is the definitive snapshot of their upcoming concept record 'Liquid Exorcist' and really dives in to this forgotten story of sea mine terrorism in the 40’s from a first-person narrative.
Detonate the mines, happens right on time, it might just blow your mind clean off
Only time will tell, swimming on egg shells, the ocean holds its breath for it to go off
I don't feel the fire only healing from the light
Raptured from the shrapnel in the twinkling of an eye
Jesus wasn't kidding when he said the end was near
Like a thief in the night I'll disappear
Halt, put your weapons down, down underground
Until they can’t be found anymore
It's a forgotten war, minefields on the shore, detonating long after the war's over
Disconnect the wires, before we all expire, but the water is turning into fire now Everybody down, the bombs have stopped their ticking sound, five seconds till Heaven's all around
