"If you want me to wait, I will wait for you" You figure its a nice love song but Benji swears its about his
"I'm not famous, you all are just crazy."
"We spend a majority of the show after the playing just walking around the crowd and meeting kids. Kids are like
'Why do you do this?' And we all say, 'Well, if it wasn't for you guys, we'd be nothing.' It's like it makes sense to us just
to hang out cuz we like to."
"I don't really think there is such a thing as a band selling out."

"I'm a goody goody. I never do bad things."
"I don't dislike too many things except for snakes! I don't have much of a tolerance for really fake people either.
Another thing I hate is when St. Paul touches my... Never mind, I'm actually pretty content with everything."
"I say we were all probably the non-football player, super academic type of people." (On what kind of people
they were in highschool)
"My biggest one [influence] would be Silverchair, is probably the reason why I play music, because when they were
like 15 and did their first record I was like 14 and I was like "oh man, if they can do it, I can do it" and I've
been following that band like obsessively since that day."
"I used to just watch cartoons. Sit in front of the tv and watch cartoons with a piece of paper and a pencil. I would
draw every cartoon character. I wanted to work for Disney really bad and be an animator. I'd sit around and draw all day long.
I never really went out and played in the woods with a bunch of snakes under rocks. I was scared of snakes. I was pretty little
