You either mellow at 30, or your head explodes - take your choice.
There's a danger in romanticizing what it means to be a writer. Because what it really means is hard, hard work. It means tearing your hair out. Feeling like your head is about to explode.
I've always had problems with my brain, so a lot of the songs are about issues I have with paranoia or freak-outs. 'When My Head Explodes' is about being on stage, having people look at you and expecting you to perform, then literally your head explodes.
Love is an exploding cigar we willingly smoke.
I'm the Legendary Radio Head
Your mind is nirvana.
