“My goal for any lyric I write is that it feel true to the character singing it. It has to do a lot of other things, too: a lyric has to follow a rhythm and rhyme scheme in order for it to be musical, the rhymes must be true, and hopefully it contributes to a song that is entertaining, or funny, or profound, or inspirational, or whatever Eric and I are going for. But it all starts with story and character.”
