Jonas: While listening back to it, I discovered these images I wrote about how I found myself while feeling this emotional sickness. While writing, I wasn’t aware of what I was doing, and looking back, I think I could have prevented it. I listen to the lyrics and they are very personal, but also, they reveal something dangerous in me, I would say. But still, I think they are translatable for every other listener. As I hear it, it doesn’t become too sentimental, it doesn’t dwell on that emotional state.
Søren: I’ve been by Jonas’ side in writing these lyrics but also through getting sick and getting better. I think it’s very important to note that the lyrics aren’t written from a state of actual depression, knowing that you are sick and wanting to get better through healing lyrics. Everything is just imagery written from a life that’s perhaps going in the wrong direction but before you realise it’s happening to you. This makes it more universal because it’s from everyday life, it feels small and very innocent in a way.
The fact that they have some sort of prophecy to them is beautiful but also scary; to see what is happening to you in your art before it actually takes over you. That was never the intention but that’s what makes them work so well. They’re so true that the writer doesn’t even know what he’s saying while he’s writing them.
