After Faithless published that catchy song, Insomnia, Lang told us that the man sought assistance. He basically said that the songs accurately described his circumstances and that he required professional assistance.

We advised yoga, meditation, Nytol, ketamine, whale noises, weed, and even the music of Coldplay; but nothing helped the poor guy.”, the doctor added.

As a Soka Gakkai Buddhist, his strong beliefs and the band's own strong individual beliefs, contrast with the name ‘Faithless', which was chosen during the writing of the song “Salva Mea”.
