Cloud 9

Album: Life On Display (2003)
  • Frontman Wes Scantlin on VH1: "'Cloud 9' was written when I was 15 years old. It was basically a rebellious poem I wrote and some crazy bass line that I came up with on a crappy bass. But I guess it was all right... The only other new part of the whole song that was written [more recently] says 'Call me when the sun goes down.' Doug [Ardito bass] told me that [line] on the phone. I asked him what he was doing. He was sleeping, and he said, 'Hey man, call me when the sun goes down.' I thought that was kind of cool."
