In maugre o the dowie nature of his lyrics, Stainthorpe insists they dinna gie a fou owerview o his personality. In 2004, he said:

(in Inglis)

"Some of the stuff is influenced by personal mishaps in life. Nobody has lived a perfectly good life without tragedies and we’ve used them as part of our songwriting. I think that dwelling on the darker side of life seems much more interesting and evocative than the happier things...I’ve got somewhere to put my depression and it’s called My Dying Bride...I'm generally a happy guy!"
