Rein It In

Story Behind The Song

I wrote this song in response to the lack of self control exhibited by both our elected leaders and the general public. Attacking flight attendants - road rage - gun violence - you get the idea...people need to chill.

The singer is heated, his blood is up, and he knows he needs to get himself under control.

Lyrics

Vs1
Bite your tongue, hold on, breathe
It's movin' too fast, spreading through me like a disease

Pre-ch1
My thoughts come fast, rushin' up like I'll explode
I know I gotta slow down, get myself under control

Ch1
Rein it in, it's not pretty to see
Rein it in, yeah, disagree, but don't referee, don't give the 3rd degree
Wait, stop, pull it back down
I don't wanna be the talk of the town
Rein it in.
Rein it in.

Vs2
I just can't figure out what it means
It's like we all got blinders on, suckin' on the teat of the machine

Pre-ch2
I better hold fast or else I'm gonna explode
Where am I gonna be if I go down that road?

Ch2
Rein it in, it's not pretty to see
Rein it in, yeah, disagree, but don't referee, don't give the 3rd degree
Wait, stop, pull it back down
I don't wanna be the talk of the town
Rein it in.
Rein it in.

Brdg
Maybe if I keep my cool, I can hear what you're tryin' to say
No one listens to a fool gettin' carried away

Ch3
Rein it in, it's not pretty to see
Rein it in, yeah, disagree, but don't referee, don't give the 3rd degree
Wait, stop, pull it back down
I don't wanna be the talk of the town
Rein it in.
Rein it in.

"Rein It In" is a really great Hard Rock song that could definitely be the right band's hit song. Great chorus and memorable hook. Awesome guitars too. Edgy and cool... definitely something that might work in the right sync situation as well. Great job!
