Oh my my my my we’re multiplying
Always living under some cloud
Always on the eve of destruction
Make you wanna scream out loud
Sometimes life seems to tear us apart
I don’t wanna let you go
Sometimes these feelings hit me, I start to cry
‘Cause I won’t ever let you go
"I thought we were fucking playing today. What’s all this noise over here, eh? Mixin’ in with our airwaves."

"There’s a lot of imagery in there [A Storm In Heaven] and it’s quite… I think because we’re so young and because I didn’t know what was in store for me life-wise, lyrically I used a lot of imagery and I think I needed to say the words that I said on this record [A Northern Soul] for cathartic reasons. And basically, you know, just growing up. Growing up in this world takes a bit out of you. And we’re lucky to have the medium of music to get it out. Do you know what I mean?”
