after being in the music business for a while he has learnt what success really means apart from selling records and being famous 

present  (0,27')
he had time to reflect and is much more relaxed now...

past  (0,45')
he's been a demon - though not always for the wrong things...

control  (0,22')
things don't seem so complicated as they did, now he got more control of his life and doesn't let the music business run away with his life... 

New York & Bristol  (0,50')
he likes to be a stranger, that's why he has to move every now and then

paranoid?  (1,27')
that's the reason he felt spaced out for two years: Candidus!

overcome?  (1,25')
he's getting over it after being numbed for two or three years, his whole life changed and he's less confused now

after karma-koma  (0,41')
he could have started learning after Nearly God, but that's the time he got sick, so now he's starting to lear and willing to take more risk

He's ready to learn more about himself and change parts of his personality

touching souls  (0,39')

the best thing is to do what you want and don't compromise...

Massive Attack?  (0,39')
everybody wants to break out of their genre, but you have to be clever to not lose your integrity

he doesn't really like the video, but it's a compromise to reach more people, and he rather compromises with his videos than his music

he wants to write beautiful songs, and then even more beautiful songs, and then....
