I’m not impressed by my opinions at all. It is the kind of information that arises from the work of making the songs that interests me, and those are positions.

They just are positions, they just are constellations of feelings and thoughts that as I say are often empty and just act as refreshment or oxygen, rather than slogans or manifestos.
