- If I was a better poet like William Carlos Williams I’d be able to write about anything, but I’m just a minor poet. So I just write about things like moments of crisis that tend to be on the sadder, darker side. You can spend ten minutes in a really dark place and write a song about it that lasts forever.

Los Angeles (1980)
The World's A Mess It's In My Kiss
- There are no angels there are devils in many ways
See How We Are (1987)
See How We Are
- Crowded fifty to a room, There's too many rats in this cage of the world, And the women know their place, They sit home and write letters, And when they visit once a year, Well they both just sit there and stare, Gotta keep bars in between us, See how we are
The Call of the Wreckin' Ball
- The life I lead is mighty slim pickens, there ain't much call for stompin' on chickens
Dim Stars, Bright Sky (2002)
- Climbing uphill, one dollar bill, this town is far.
- I think whenever you are trying to establish something new, you have to draw a line and put everything that came before that behind you.
- I think we were among the first positive examples of country music for the punk rock audience.
- I don't know of any other band that has two vocalists that can sing together without competition.
- Restraint can be tough. I've made a point to learn how to make a slow song have as much impact as a fast song. That's a challenge I've given myself, because it's easy to just get out there and blast through a bunch of things and feel as though you're exciting the audience. If you can do that with a slow song, then you really have some variety and some range.
- You can't be a politician with a guitar.
