Moreover he portrays himself as “a messed up kid” who has to deal with issues such as being afraid to sleep in the dark, feeling repressed and perhaps most notably ‘confusion’. And in general this reality, once again, is based in his interactions with others. 

So conclusively, the vocalist has both internal and external issues. The internal matters seem to be sourced in work-related stress. And the external is more along of lines of him having difficulty making true, edifying friends, which is also at least partially influenced by his profession.
