RESTRICT THIS…….It’s always been about the truth, speaking your mind even if no one wanted to listen. I never wanted to just write lyrics that everyone wants to hear I wanted to write lyrics that some people need to hear. When we started the band we were 13 and we just wanted to offend everyone. But as you grow up you begin to realize sometimes the most offensive thing you can ever tell someone is the truth. What drew me to punk rock in the first place was the honesty. They said things no one else was willing to say. Talked about things most of the music industry would never begin to think of discussing. I wanted to write songs that inspire people. That cut people’s hearts, shake someone’s world, and change the way they look at. Songs that can help people overcome tragedy, and give them hope. Songs that would say everything they were really feeling inside. Not feeding them a fake American life style just to sell records. I know I may never change the world but if I can just change one person’s life for the good then it was all worth it.
