Redefine

Album: S.C.I.E.N.C.E (1997)

Songfacts®:

  • Lead singer Brandon Boyd: "Redefine is about the creation of your own reality and your own world. The metaphor I used was humans being like Magic Markers. For so long, they painted black and white pictures in their life because that's all they thought they could do. But they can paint with a different color and make a very vibrant and beautiful picture if they take control." >>

  • Zero from Nowhere, NjS.C.I.E.N.C.E. is def my favorite Incubus record. It's got the energy and silliness of Fungus Amongus/Enjoy Incubus but the intelligence and deep thinking of later Incubus. Plus it effin' rocks!
