THIS IS A CALL
"The chorus says 'This is a call to all my past resignation.' It's just sort of like a little wave to all the people I ever played music with, people I've been friends with, all my relationships, my family. It's a hello, and in a way a thank you."
I'LL STICK AROUND
"It's just a very negative song about feeling you were violated or deprived."
"Girl meets boy, boy falls in love, girl tells him to fuck off!"
"I just have an amazing insecurity about my voice, there are no effects on the voice, well, on the song 'Floaty' there are, but everything else is double-tracked."
"I've taken heat for a lot of lyrics I wrote four years ago. It frightens me to think the line 'one shot nothing' in 'Weenie Beenie' would be taken wrong. I mean, I wrote that song in 1991."
"My least favourite song is probably 'Oh, George' which is off the first record. That album was made so quickly that it doesn't really count."
FOR ALL THE COWS
"A song like 'X-static' is the only way I can express grief or happiness."
"'Wattershed' is a inspired by my love of hardcore and old school punk rock"
"'Exhausted' is kind of a melancholy thing. It's sad but it makes you feel good, and it fades out in the end, so in a way it continues in your head."
