Lyrical references

  • From "Heart Songs" (2008):

Quiet Riot got me started with the banging of my head
Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, and Slayer taught me how to shred

  • From "(If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To" (2009):

The moon was shining on the lake that night
The Slayer t-shirt fit the scene just right
Through smeared mascara, I looked into your eyes and saw a light
