RM said, “ In an intro to one of our early albums, there is a line that says, ‘My heart stopped when I was maybe 9 or 10’. Looking back, I think that’s when I began to worry about what other people thought of me and started seeing myself through their eyes. I stopped looking up at the night sky, the stars. I stop daydreaming.”

He continued: “Instead, I tried to jam myself into the other moulds that other people made. Soon, I began to shut out my own voice and started to listen to the voices of others. No one called out my name and neither did I. My heart stopped and my eyes closed shut. So, like this, I -we- all lost our names. We became like ghosts.”
