For Diego, may this new journey and challenge see you RISE to incredible new heights 🖤
Over the years many people through out every corner, in every continent of the earth have reached out to me simply to express how much my words and music has affected them and helped them either through troubled times, through party times, through madness and in some cases to find love.
As I have always stated, my words and music are simply my way of self-medication, a cathartic exercise to assist me with my own issues. Much like a mad painter or a drunk poet that must do the work to simply breathe and live.
This album is dedicated to those souls out there that are currently struggling with severe depression and are battling with thoughts of suicide. I myself know all too well the severity and intensity of how dark things can get. I hope you can find a way out, I hope that you can somehow overcome this moment, this storm. There are many people out there just like us, and like them, you are not alone in this struggle. Either betrayal, a death, an illness, a terrible accident, a loss of something important or even something mundane or simply the recurring nightmares, the anger, the self-loathing, or a culmination of all these things, it is all a struggle. I’ve recently come to the conclusion that life is simply a game, perhaps it is a dumb game and yet we have to find interesting ways to keep playing and maybe, sometimes, not just for ourselves but for something grander than ourselves. Love won’t save us, but we, more than most can save love. As the old saying goes “the weird people... the black sheep, the odd ducks, the rejects, the eccentrics, the loners, the lost and forgotten. More often than not, these people have the most beautiful souls.” The world needs more of us, if simply just to keep it interesting and to reclaim it from the fake, the snakes, the hate.
I leave you with the words of one of my heroes and perhaps one of the strangest ducks of all. Last month I met David Lynch in person and asked him if he had any advice for a lost dreamer…..he said “Well, maybe if the lost dreamer can look into transcendental meditation, perhaps the dreamer will be found.”
