"Fear is a companion of our existence. If you have never been anxious, you have never met yourself," says Damiaan Denys.

The song Neighbours evokes loneliness in him: "Like, we are sitting here together, but still we don't know each other. That loneliness is a deficit, which we experience because we have too much. Too many possessions, for example, with which we create little forts of our individualistic existence. In doing so, we isolate ourselves, but also the other."
