Rescue is an alternative rock song by Eve 6 composed by Max Collins, Jon Siebels, and Tony Fagenson. It was released on 2000-07-25 as track 1 on the album Horrorscope. On the album recording Collins sings vocals and plays bass, Siebels plays electric guitar, and Fagenson plays drums. Keyboard was played by either Fagenson or Don Gilmore.

The song is about being "rescued" by the sexual advances of women. The song includes three locations, a Western place outside of the city, the Florida flatlands, and Atlanta, so it could be that the song is about a single women traveling to meet him, but it might also be about three different women each with a similar appetite. What the women are rescuing him from isn't really clear, the only suggestive part is that he's bored or frustrated with the haze and smog of his old home. The chorus compares the woman to the redheaded animated vixen Jessica Rabbit from the film Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

I love how the song stays upbeat for the entire duration, and adding bits of synth and production effects to alternative hard rock results in a wonderful timbre. I especially like the bridge after the second verse with the guitar and synthesizer switching to mostly vocals. The auto-tune certainly places the song at a particular point history.

Personal

This is one of the songs on the album that I immediately liked the first time I heard it. I love how it celebrates sexual women and how they can "rescue" you by making you feel much better about your life. I especially love listening to it when I drive fast on the highway with my top down on a hot sunny day. It puts me in a great mood.

Lyrics

Ahowowow! Uh uh uh!

Well, I rode a Western wind with a girl over to her mother's.
In the backyard stars shone brighter than the others,
That I rarely see through the smog through the haze that covers,
The home that I used to live in.
Yeah, yeah, we kind of, sort of knew what was going to happen,
When she put her number down on a restaurant napkin,
And she said goodbye, think the words were,
"When you're back in town let's have each other again.
I'll come around and see you again."

Like Jessica Rabbit,
She collects bad habits,
Gets her drinks for free.
Animated vixen,
Stole Cupid's arrow,
And came to rescue me.
In the blink of an eyelid,
My lid opened up,
And I could see,
That she'd come to rescue me.

I tasted Southern sin with a girl who was just perfection.
Had a two room condo back in a wealthy section,
Of the Florida flatlands where she had me kept in,
A wicked trance for a day.
Yeah, yeah, we kind of, sort of knew what was going to happen,
When she and a friend came and met me in Atlanta,
I professed my love in an animalistic manner,
Like an endless foreign flick.
My subtitles were sick.

Like Jessica Rabbit,
She collects bad habits,
Gets her drinks for free.
Animated vixen,
Stole Cupid's arrow,
And came to rescue me.
In the blink of an eyelid,
My lid opened up,
And I could see,
That she'd come to rescue me.

Yeah, yeah, we kind of, sort of saw the sirens coming,
She was running toward me wearing almost nothing,
And my heart beat skipped when she bent down at the hip,
And her lips pressed against mine.

Like Jessica Rabbit,
She collects bad habits,
Gets her drinks for free.
Animated vixen,
Stole Cupid's arrow,
And came to rescue me.
In the blink of an eyelid,
My lid opened up,
And I could see,
That she'd come to rescue me.

She'd come to rescue, she'd come to rescue me.

Here she comes to rescue me.
I'm not gonna blink cause I wanna see.
I wanna see her come.
Here she comes,
Here she comes.
