Very interesting song that kept my attention from the jump. Excellent instrumentation and lyrics, and it was almost as much jazz as rock. I really liked it though, and it's a cut you could hear on radio. Extremely stylistic, balanced and well-recorded.

It's a mean skied night
Transformers poppin' you can see 'em in the skylight
It's a sight
In for a real good blow
A limb snappin', wall crackin'
Watch the picture windows bow, blow
We're in for some Chainsaw Weather

It's a green skied night
No time for cruisin' with the top down
Or dancin' in the moonlight
Not tonight
We're havin' some Chainsaw Weather

Scare up some candles
Stoke up the fire
Slip beneath those wrinkled covers
With your heart's desire
Listen for the thunder as it shouts down the wind
It's Chainsaw Weather, Chainsaw Weather

Streets are deserted
Not a sane soul in sight
Plywood on the windows
All the stores locked up tight
Cats and dogs hidin' out
Lookin' terrified
Man and beast together know it's pure suicide to
Dance with this devil
Better show some respect
'Cause Chainsaw Weather
Can be a real mean architect

Scare up some candles
Stoke up the fire
Slip bebeath those wrinkled covers
With you heart's desire
Listen for the thunder
as it shouts down the wind
It's Chainsaw Weather
Chainsaw Weather
