““We are all connected to each other and to everything else in the universe,” he said. “We are happiest when we are kind to one another.” His beats and lyrics encompass the notions “enjoy the ride” and “it’s more about the journey than the destination,” advising others to “take a seat and find the tune, try and laugh it will all be over soon” and to not “fall down and lose your heart.” Lind explained, “I think the closest I’ve come to effectively expressing some of those ideas in a song was with ‘All of Us Are Strangers.’ The title is a bit ironic, because the theme of the song is really how we are all connected, and how we are so much alike.” In other songs, he suggests that if you look closely at another, you might see yourself and that sometimes we trade our childhood for loneliness and pain; while he does touch upon life’s woes, he does it in a way that makes you think that it’s not so bad.”
