General information

Written by: A. Lee

Push the Button is the first track from Amy Lee and Dave Eggar's soundtrack album, Aftermath, written for the film, War Story. Amy revealed the song in an interview with MTV News:

Vin1.jpg That song is called 'Push the Button.' For a long time, the director, Mark, just couldn't find the right song placement for this one scene that he wanted something really different sounding. So I was like 'You know what? I can do this myself. It's very different for me, it's electronic; I did it all myself, which was crazy, because I'm used to engineering and writing and mixing demos in my house, but being responsible for that being the end product was a new challenge for me. It was like 'This is it, I'm mixing this.'[1] Vin2.jpg

Is this a dream?
I feel the earth beneath my feet (Can I play the hunter?)
The hunter is my name
Yes I am the hunter
(Push the button)
We force it down
Put on a play to hide our shame (Can I play the hunter?)
No wonder we're in chains
Time to feed the hunger
(Push the button)
