“Self-destructive behavior is just that. It provides no glory. Some of the upbeat tunes such as "Soothe the Savage Beast," "Epoxy Lips Now," and "Lucifer Sanus," venture into Avant rock. Songs such as "Comfy Pants" are about little dramas in life such as a birdhouse blowing down from a tree in the back yard. "Botox Betty" is a good old-fashioned beer drinking tune, while "Children of the Moon" is about the joy and wonder of being a parent. All and all the band tries to incorporate a musical style that best fits the lyrics and spirit of the song and tries to provide music that one can listen to, think about, enjoy, and, sometimes, even dance to.”
