"I tend to personally go for impressionistic styles of music. I find them a little bit more stimulating, more interesting over a longer period of time. Really to try to pin them down is a mistake. Like 'Indian Symmer Sky' - that song is, I think, autobiographical, in a sense, of the band, but I wouldn't even attempt to try to analyze it or come up with a sort of one-liner that tells you exactly what that song is."
- The Edge, 1985
