Trivia/Info

  • You can't create a masterpiece dabbling in finger-paints: this sorry excuse for a song is an example of how other bands get the idea of the Power Spheres completely wrong.
  • Compare this to the far superior "Integrity Project", from which this song borrows its melody.
  • Ironically, this song contains no wind chimes.
  • Created for the video made to promote Apollo 18 in 1992.
  • John and John had previously expressed that songs centered on lyrics like "tonight!" and "into the night!" [1] are antithetical to their songwriting ethos, which is on display here in their example of a bad song.
