Mark writes a new song called "Sunday Night"

"Are you sure you can deal with fame?"----The real question is, can fame deal with us? Because we're pretty much out to revolutionize the music world, and culture in general.

"Why are you so arrogant?"----We are given one lifetime to change the world. Fame is how you can make the most of it. Aim any lower than fame, and you're probably not giving your art enough respect.

"But aren't you just going to sell out in order to get to the top? How would that rest with your conscience? And wouldn't that compromise the integrity of your art?"----No. Our art is by definition to communicate to the masses, enacting social change in the process. Try doing that out of a garage or in a small club. Frankly, I think people will be interested in what we have to say. Good, honest art doesn't have to be unintelligible, pretentious and badly arranged (i.e. much of indie rock). Our music will be catchy, the lyrics simple, but informed by actual thought and complex, reality-based feelings.
