I get along with Pete really, really well, and we get along with Joe fine. Honestly, we've learned how to give each other our space. We totally know what the breaking point is, and we bite our tongues.
Our lyrics are about a lot of things. They are not very introspective. For example, the song 'Panic Prone' is about drugs, this idea about kids getting drugged up and medicating themselves and whether to help people or not help people at all.
