I hope for the day that there is nothing to sing about. I long to live in that world. But it’s not happening. The reason I started this band, and the reason I still do it, is that I still open a paper and say, “Holy Shit! Are you kidding me? Is this really happening? Are people voting for things like Proposition 8? Is this America? Are we still in Iraq and in a place that people think a white versus a black president is a big deal?” There is so much to address through music. There is plenty we need to learn from. One of these wars will teach us not to get into another one, because we have amnesia about the previous ones.
