My wife is always watching these Spanish Soap Operas where exotic looking half clothed women scream and cry all the time and the men angrily speak too fast to understand even though it's in Spanish and I don't understand it anyway. So what I do is make up things that they're probably talking about instead of worrying about the plot points. If I'm forced to watch or hear that stuff, I might as well make it entertaining.
The same can hold true for music. Many times I find out a song I've loved for years isn't at all about what I thought it was. Sometimes it ruins it for me and I prefer to hold on to my interpretation of the song instead of knowing that it was really about a dog that died (I Used to Love Her) for example. So to that end, we strive to create some rather obscure and vague songs that are about something, but you can interpret in many different ways and make them about whatever you want. That way you don't have to think too hard or worry about getting it. Whatever you think we're talking about is fine. You're probably wrong but no one knows that except us and we won't tell anyone you're lying.

Paul and I have been bouncing ideas back and forth via email in regards to songs we're working on. This makes the collaboration process possible over long distances. I know we didn't invent this concept but it took awhile for the revelation to sink in. Now we're in safer waters and this should speed up the progress of the album a bit.
