"this album is focused on the want-to-be-happy, rather than the being-happy... You feel like you're on the verge of being happy... and it's very very fucking frustrating. The only way you know how to channel that happiness is through this 'i remember when things were happy, let me realize it, its almost there!' and after you do it, its not there! and its frustrating! and then you yell and lay down and cry and sleep"
