Psyche,” a track which Martina [Topley-Bird] wrote the words for, I love because it’s like that flittering of the sun on your eyelids when you’re driving in a car, going through light through trees. That kind of strange memory of all the summers you’ve ever had. It can often make you feel sort of sad and quite lost and lonely at times when it comes. But there are times when you get that flickering light, and you actually feel alright with that. The fact that everything’s going by and these moments will never be repeated, but that’s OK because you’re enjoying it for what it is. You actually get to experience it in the present, and don’t worry about the past. That song has that feel to me. It’s a song about life and growing up, but it makes it feel alright, you know? It’s one of those things that makes you feel alright about it all.
- Robert Del Naja of Massive Attack, when asked which was his favorite track on Heligoland and the lyrical meaning behind it.
