Hardcore Punk Song About 2006 Mets!

So I got an email from a guy doing publicity for a Queens-based hardcore punk band called Caught in a Trap. Turns out they are big Mets fans and actually wrote a song about the ill-fated 2006 team.

The song is called “Easy Come Easy Go” and appears on their new album Goodnight New York. Here’s what band member Rich Fie told VENTS Magazine about the song:

If you listen to the lyrics you would think it is about a person who constantly lets you down….but if I’m being completely honest…it was written about the 2006 New York Mets baseball season…hahaha…they were CLOSE…then they choked!!! Musically it’s probably the most important song we wrote for the new record…just because it was the first song we wrote together that wasn’t a straight up hardcore song….it was a little more rock and roll in the guitars….and we dug it…..so we kinda used it as a template to write the rest of the album.

Cool stuff! Here is a link to hear the song:

And here are the lyrics:

EASY COME EASY GO

I thought we were on the same page
We had it in the palm of our hand
I thought we had our eyes on the prize
We were heading towards the promised land
But then you threw it all away
Yet you expect me just to understand
Now all we have is shattered dreams
It slipped right out of our hands

They say it’s easy come, it’s easy go
They promise you there’s always tomorrow
But they don’t know
They just don’t know

I thought we could accomplish so much
I guess time was not on our side
I thought you would come through in the clutch
But you decided just to run and hide so
I guess we should just pack it in
Forget about our hopes and our plans
Cause all we have is shattered dreams
It slipped right out of our hands

Can’t figure it out, I’ll never figure out why
You gave us hope but then let hope die
