INCUBUS: (Latin for ´nightmare´) In medieval European folklore, the incubus is a male demon (or evil spirit) who visits women in their sleep to lie with them in ghostly sexual intercourse.

´´Redefine´ is about the creation of your own reality and your own world. The metaphor I used was humans being like Magic Markers. For so long, they painted black and white pictures in their life because that´s all they thought they could do. But they can paint with a different color and make a very vibrant and beautiful picture if they take control.´

´In ´New Skin,´ I attribute a scab to the present state of society. The way the scab looks in its worst state is gross and chaotic and horrible, that´s now, but when it breaks away, there´s a brand new piece of skin that´s stronger than before. It´s like creation out of chaos.

´Idiot Box´, is about TV culture. ´Television, isn´t good for your brain. In the song, I fantasized about a world without TV.´


´´Favorite Things´ is my personal beliefs about religion and how it oppresses the things I enjoy the most. Unfortunately, the simplest things, such as thinking for myself, creating my own reality and being whatever the hell I want to be each day of my life, are a sin. To be a good Christian basically means to give up the reigns of your life and let some unseen force do it for you.´

´Nowhere Fast´, We´ve been exploring drum-´n´-bass here and there on stage, playing little improvisational ditties in between real songs from the records. José would start playing a drum-´n´-bass he´d made up, I´d play my didgeridoo to it, and songs started forming out of live things like that. That´s how ´Nowhere Fast´ was written, through improvisational live jams.

´Stellar´, The lyrics were inspired by my lover, Joan English girl I met in France. It´s about love as a transcendental feeling, like free-floating in outer space. It´s kind of a traditional song in that way.

´Drive´, Scott [Litt] had a big hand in arranging and producing this track with us. The lyric is basically about fear, about being driven all your life by it and making decisions from fear. It´s about imagining what life would be like if you didn´t live it that way.

´Battlestar Scralatchtica´, We have two guest turntablists on this one, DJ Cut Chemist and DJ Nu-Mark. They´re from Jurassic 5, a West Coast hiphop group, very good--amazing, in fact. They´re friends of DJ Kilmore and this track is a three-way DJ battle. I don´t know who wins, but we´d love to recreate it on stage if we ever get the opportunity.

´Pardon Me´, I was in a bookstore, browsing through an old Life magazine, when I saw a picture of what the article called spontaneous human combustion. There were an old guy´s legs and shoes, perfectly intact...then, right around his knee area, was just a pile of charred ashes. I was going through some turmoil in my life, both good and bad, and the image struck a chord, so...I wrote a song about it.
