I never write lyrics out of context with the music. I never sit with a notebook and just start writing lyrics. I do it just with my headphones on, listening to whatever music sketches they’ve sent me, singing along. Most of the time, I’m looking for rhythm and melody, and by not worrying about lyrics I’ll free associate with whatever comes to mind. I think sometimes the mood of the music that I’m singing to will pull me in directions lyrically. Often, I’ve gotten the credit or blame for the band being thought of as a dark, moody, miserablist band, or whatever we’ve been called over the years, but I think a lot of that comes from the music, and I’m just reacting to it. I will admit that I easily and happily go to some of the sentimental and melodramatic, dark places in my head and heart, but I’m reacting to the music most of the time.(x)
