Q: A lot has been discussed previously about the music of this album, but no one has yet to talk about the lyrics, yet I get the sense that you're lyrics delve into esotericism and occultism and that makes me curious. Do you write all of the lyrics? A: Yes, I write all the lyrics. And your sense is definitely correct, but with about a million qualifiers. I'm what some people call a vulgar materialist. I don't even entertain notions of "energy" unless they're scientific ones. And certainly no religions, cults, or notions of soul and afterlife, etc. interest me as guides for life. But the occult and esotericism did become very personal and useful to me around the time I was writing the lyrics. It all becomes interesting to me once I completely divorce it from the meaning it's supposed to have to an expert. A highly personalized system of symbols and ideas that speaks to me and gives a sort of aesthetic, non-verbal element to life. Or, in this case, to the piece of work being created. With Vaura and with this record, I had become pretty interested in the literal notion of occultation. The hidden, the poetic. I always liked Anton LaVey's notion of religion as a psychodrama. It feels like one of the most honest ways of talking about the service religion provides. I like his idea of just inventing one for yourself, rituals and symbologies. The themes I dealt with on this record and the overall approach lined up with my discovering that all of that might have a place in my life and work. 'Selenelion' is in many ways a personal psychodrama.
