Steven Wilson (vocalist/guitarist/songwriter) says The Incident is a statement.
The idea for The Incident came to Wilson as he was tied up in a traffic jam.
While driving past an accident, he noticed the “Police-Incident” tape around the parameter of the accident.
It then hit Wilson, that “Incident” really does mean some traumatic, and destructive. Wilson also says that he felt the person in the accident had died, and the person’s spirit had entered his car.
Steven then began to reflect and think about Incidents in all aspects of life. Incident does mean something traumatic, and is an event in itself.
