"It’s made me realize how, as isolated as I feel sometimes that I’m not alone, and that’s very, very important, I think. I think as humans, we can defeat most anything, but except for loneliness. Loneliness is the worst because you’ll just give up everything if you feel absolutely alone. If you feel like there’s no one else who understands what you’re facing, or what you’re experiencing or what you’re feeling. But as soon as you realize that other people see the world the way that you do, have the same emotional archetecture that you do…and they’ve overcome it, those obstacles - then it doesn’t seem like such a lost cause, it doesn’t seem so hopeless. And I remember feeling that. I remember feeling hopeless. I remember feeling isolated, and alone and I never wanted anybody to feel that… so my music has always been, at least, for me - a beacon - to sort of draw those fireflies out of the dark so that we can find each other."
