“I use the word ‘Xeno’ in this song as a metaphorical expression for our individual quirks. We each have our own ‘out of this world’ ways of perceiving, behaving, and living. And whilst people may question (as I sometimes do) whether the way they are is normal or not, I believe that everyone should be proud of their peculiarities because they are YOUR ways of doing! They make YOU who YOU are and there is no right or wrong in that! ‘Xeno’ thus elaborates on this sentiment, where I talk about my own gradual acceptance with my ways.” – ION comments on the track.
