“I’ve never been an autobiographic writer… I tend to fictionalize everything that goes into the words I write for songs. As a lyricist, there may be, I’m not kidding, like eight songs in the whole canon of R.E.M. and other stuff that I’ve done outside of that, that actually are very, very, very personal to me. The rest of it is a lot of imagination.” – Michael
