Om mig

The title is taken from the phrase, "The spark that led to...." that people use when they're talking about coming up with an invention. I was trying to hint at something that sparks your imagination and leads to these other things - but instead of it leading in a technical sense to a next step, it leads to something of a more human nature: an emotional thing. It's the play on words - a spark can't bleed! - for the human spark, the way that ideas arrive and the process of them coming out of you. And that's not just in the sense of art, everybody does it. Whether you have a medium like I do, albums or interviews, or not, that process happens to everybody. It's not magic - it's a mysterious human thing that we all know is there although we can't ever speak of it in words. You have to go round it and hint at it and then people sort of know what you're talking about. It's like when you look at the sky - it seems brighter in your peripheral vision than if you look at it directly. And maybe a lot of perception is like that: being immersed in something else is sometimes the only way to understand some things. 'The Spark That Bled' is really hinting at all of these ideas, with the main theme that there are some things that you can only understand as a peripheral observer.

"On a ferris wheel / Looking out on Coney Island / Under more stars than / There are prostitutes in Thailand".
