- Described by a fan: "Some songs are like as if I were swimming... going on and on, gliding over the water. Listening to it I feel there is no world outside, only the water, all around me. It is sad and i feel it is honest really. Like when at your show your eyes were closed all the time, as if you weren't present, and then sometimes i closed my eyes too, and I felt like that too, that I'm not there... I loved that. It's a bit like me, it's sad, but it lives... and I was listening to it on the bus, too, on the way home, because some songs are like when you have to take a step forward, have to go on... to be on the road without wanting to arrive.. you don't even know where - as there isn't much choice."
