Art is essentially communication. It doesn't exist in a vacuum. That's why people make art, so other people can relate to it.
I've given up trying to understand what people think about me. It seems like a lot of people don't like the music we make and don't know me, or something.
I like ideas, but I don't like being preached to.
It's very strange when people get so focused on what a song means, what actual events inspired a song. That gets people really excited for some reason... But that's what's great about music - however people interpret it, whatever they see, is what I want to be there for them.
