From the same album - a quote that to me sums up the dichotomy between art for art's sake and art for money.


"All this machinery making modern music can still be open-hearted
Not so coldly charted, it's really just a question of your honesty - yeah, your honesty

One likes to believe in the freedom of music
But glittering prizes and endless compromises shatter the illusion of integrity"
