Two song-related questions: What do you generally compose first--lyrics or music? How much of your lyrics come from personal experience and how much from the general human experience?

When I (Ryan) write, I almost always start with the music. Cameron often writes lyrics first. We generally write lyrics with a very personal connection. I think that it's important for there to be a personal connection to make the song relatable
