The song is a response to that encounter, a childish mean spirited immature response (we are a punk band after all). Although we think it's fine for people to believe and practice any religion they choose, we also think the governor of a state should not make official statements of magically warding off hurricanes and furthermore should not act in such a ridiculous and bigoted manner when confronted about it. Also, as the song points out in the bridge, a lot of other places did get hit by pretty serious hurricanes during Crist's tenor as governor. If he had the power to stop hurricanes, why only do it in Florida? Why let a hurricanes hit already impoverished areas that are even less equipped to deal with those disasters? So that's why we wrote that song. But, in addition to covering this topic we think it is an awesome high energy punk song, with a nice grooving bridge in the middle. I hope you find that interesting. Not too many bands have personal beef with high ranking government officials. The song is going to be on our upcoming album Curse of the Unsinkable Ship which will be released in January of 2013.
