Grand Canyon
by Puscifer
Interviewer: Speaking of Arizona — was the song "Grand Canyon" specifically inspired by a visit to the Grand Canyon, or is it just the perfect metaphor for the awe-inspiring majesty of nature?
Maynard: It's a perfect metaphor for understanding how insignificant you are in the big picture. Once you can embrace your nothingness, you can move forward to a positive end. Standing at the edge of a thing like the Grand Canyon puts things literally and figuratively in perspective — you're just a blip on the screen of what all happened here. I feel like, if that doesn't move you, then something's wrong with you. So literally the Grand Canyon, and figuratively the Grand Canyon, in reference to the track. It's meant to bring perspective, in some way. And, you know, the video [for the song] can only do it so much justice. You have to get off your ass; you have to get out of the rut that you're stuck in, and make the journey to some other place.

I feel like our school systems are just training people to be obedient for factory work. I feel like, if you really want people to learn, every kid at the high school level should travel. That should be part of the curriculum, going to other places — great places and awful places — to learn world perspective. Because if they have a wider perspective on what goes on in the world, they're going to be better people for it.
