One origin story for the band's name, as quoted in the liner notes of Fallow, is a line from the 1992 film TheLover: "Go ahead, I'm weaker than you can possibly imagine." The band's name may also refer to a Ralph Chaplin quote from "Solidarity Forever":"What force on Earth can be weaker than the feeble strength of one?" The band alludes to this line in the song "Pamphleteer" from the album Left andLeaving. « hide
