Declare Independence

And even songs like Declare Independence... I mean, it is a tongue-in-cheek song for me, people don’t get that. I’ve said this before but when I was writing it thought it was hilarious – it’s like if you’re friend is heartbroken by a girl and she’s upsetting him, you can shout at him, declare independence ! Don’t let her do that to you ! Like those country and western songs with really strong lyrics, but kind of punk, when the words don’t fit to the song. People don’t realise the humour in those clashes I do !, April 9 2008
