It’s a song called ‘Killing time’. Obviously that’s [written about] someone in my past, but it’s not as obvious as it seems; it is debilitating your time, not time to kill things. And it had to do with some of the situations that myself and different band members have gotten into with the band over time. And I’m sure a lot of people will identify with that. So that one, it’ll be sent to the radio, my God, any minute.”

But ‘Night Stalker’ it’s about the 160th Battalion with the United States Army, and it’s all the black ops helicopters that come in at night; no one knows they are there; they are in, they are out. And I had my friend Ice T join me in a part in the middle of it, because Ice he was an army ranger, and he did two tours in Afghanistan, I think it was. I think that was in ’91, when I met him. It might have been a little earlier than that, but I know he was a ranger. And he had just done something on his last record. But when I asked him, I thought it would be great to have him because of his bravery and then the fact that he has real credibility as someone who was there. And then we have several other guys to get on the track just to make it as real as possible. We’re going to go to the base to shoot a lot of sights and sounds of helicopters and things like that. We have three videos that we’re doing for this album right now in Brazil, and we’re combining all that production and the base material, with the helicopters and everything together, to make this first three-song video. offering”.

And there was – was the song ‘police truck’. So we recorded that.”
