'The Flight Of Apollo' is really about the idea that you can pick up somebody when they're down. If you love people and human beings, you can see yourself in their shoes, and that's what friends are for. And the idea that life shouldn't hurt so badly, you know… I remember when we were writing the words for it, that all the shapes and colors of the earth are specifically for life not to hurt. So, when you have a bad day, or you have some bad things going down, you fail to realize the beauty of all the color and all the shapes of the universe around you.
