The Happy Than Ever The singer explains that he has experienced a number of different physical techniques that have simply become a part of him, saying:
“I never tick, because the main ticks that I keep doing, all day long, are, I move my ears back and forth and raise my eyebrows and click on my jaw. And my arm is bent here and it flexes. [stomach] Muscle. These are things you will never notice if you just talk to me, they are very tiring for me. “
Giz. That’s not a tiring word!
Unfortunately, the toll is not just physical. He has been ridiculed all his life for this uncontrolled movement – some of it not even intentional:
“The most common way people react is when they laugh because they think I’m trying to make fun … and I’m always incredibly annoyed by it.”
A. It’s bad. He went on to say that he did not always “get” the syndrome, in detail:
“I really like to answer questions about it because it’s very, very interesting, and I’m incredibly confused by it. I don’t understand it.”

Internally, his ticks go down while he’s doing what he’s doing – performing! He explains that when he concentrates on something and walks around (like singing a song or even riding a horse), he doesn’t feel much ticks by adding:
“When I walk around, I don’t last long at all.”
