  • on maynard's commentary for the song "3 libras" from the "aMOTION" dvd, he states, "this song is about the kind of people who recognize that other people recognize there's something going on with a person, an individual, or a situation...and they're kind of like the 'clingers-on', so to speak, they're kind of like barnicles, in a way, parasites...they recognize there's an energy on some level, but they just kind of feed on it, rather than add into it or grow from it...and it just so happened that i had several individuals in my life who all fit that description, they didn't really recognize on a deeper level what myself and some of my friends really had to offer, and they were just parasitic, in a way..."
