      'Down Low' is a denial of the way things have been traditionally handed down and a realization of the way things actually are. We tend to revisit that general theme from record to record. We all embraced that punk rock 'kill your idols' mentality, but in the heart of that place where Faulkner wrote, "The past is never dead. It's not even past."

        'New Boy' is a statement about wanting to make a change to achieve a stronger moral standing, but not being able to leave behind the material pleasures that stand in the way. On the record, it's pretty chopped back, with a banjo and everything. Live, though, Matt and Brian can really push it. We're all into that Memphis/Muscle Shoals stuff."

          "'Missionary Blues' is a scattered attempt to discredit the Sunday morning concept of publicly professing your faith. I was raised in a large church in Montgomery, and at the end of every service the preacher would ask new believers to come down in front of the church and make a public profession of faith. The repeated chorus, "coming on down," is about an internal, private struggle to prove faith to one's self by actions of repentance, as opposed to making public statements of meaningless value.

                  The music for this song sounded like a road trip tune to me, and I was reminded about the days when the Carters would pile ourselves and our equipment into Todd's PT Cruiser for a weekend of shows (hence the name tight quarters). Since it was hard to write a whole song's worth of lyrics that could be summarized by "we were drunk and played songs for the bartender and the doorguy," I ended up writing about how Todd is NEVER on time to leave on these road trips. Waiting for Todd is as much of a Carter tradition as shirtless wrestling. Hope you enjoy the song. -Andy

                    This song was ostensibly written at the behest of the fine folks at the Nashville Cream blog for their second birthday celebration. They had surveyed their readers to scientifically decipher what made the most rocking songs rock, for the purpose of Frankensteining together "Nashville's Most Awesome Rock Song." We were given an exhaustive spreadsheet with the results of their poll and charged with writing the song. As expected, riffs were better than chord progressions, keyboards and jamming were universally bad, and short guitar solos and songs about doing it and partying were good. The song is really about the bouncer at the Bear Flag Restaurant whorehouse in Steinbeck's Cannery Row. After we played it, the Cream said something like, "The Carter Administration's rendition of Nashville's Most Awesome Rock Song sounded, well... like The Carter Administration." As I can think of no other band I'd rather sound like, I took this as the compliment it was intended to be. Imitation being the sincerest form of flattery, I suppose the compliment was dual. -Todd

                      Initially written as a birthday present for my nephew, this song just wouldn't leave me alone. It seemed like it could be a nice addition to the Carter catalog, and the boys agreed. After a few arrangement adjustments, plenty of lyrical changes, and some well placed guitar heroics courtesy of Mr. Sam Powers, we arrived at the finished product. Lyrically, the song is basically about dealing with life as it gets more complicated. It seems pretty easy when you're barely legal, it's more or less uphill from there. Any similarities between this song's title and the adult periodical of the same name is, uh, purely coincidental. -Ryan
