Fascinating Fact #5:

The album’s title track, “Clumsy,” addresses the need for people to think for themselves and be sceptical of what they hear in popular culture. As singer Raine Maida explains, "There's a connection between the song 'Clumsy' and it being the title of the album. There's a line in the song that says: 'I'll be waving my hand/watching you drown/watching you scream', it's about...
