Thanx, man! That's cool of you to think they rule!
I'm glad you like our songs.
There are so many different ways that I write...
It is hard to explain.
I'd like to say its easy and there's a simple formula but...
its not, and there isn't.
Thanx again for the interest man!
You Rule!

I use those little refrigerator word thingys. And those wooden alphabet blocks. That's why I don't write any really long songs... I run outta words.
