I get a lot from dreams. I work in the dream state. I've studied the paranormal for twenty years, so the dream state for me is something I'm quite familiar with. So it's not surprising that a lot of my songs come through that way. I always consider myself sort of an interpreter of somebody else's work.

There's a lot more competition.

If it was easy it wouldn't be worth it.
