Lethal was written shortly after I completed work on The Unforetold is one of my rare attempts to write a traditional song format. This one even has a proper lyrics and a melody (which I never finalized or recorded). I was definitely inspired by Pet Shop Boys when I wrote this. They were coming out with these amazing simple pop songs harkening back to their earlier days and I wanted to come up with something similar. I’m not sure if I intended for it to be on the next album or not. But what I do remember is that I was approached to write some demos for a possible musical version of The Terminator that was coming out, and this was one of them. The musical did ultimately get finished, my song did not.
