I went to buy some smokes and I saw this thing in the paper about Kurt ODing in Italy. I got home – I was alone in the house – and I remember all of a sudden shaking with panic. Feeling like that would be the worst thing – being panicked at the thought of the music world without him.

The song is about letting go. It’s very rare for a relationship to withstand the Earth’s gravitational pull and where it’s going to take people and how they’re going to grow. I’ve heard it said that you can’t really have a true love unless it was a love unrequited. It’s a harsh one, because then your truest one is the one you can’t have forever.

Hey, can I tell everybody something? This is a true story. … Two years ago October, I didn’t know Jeff or Stone and I was right here in the pit watching Soundgarden play. It’s true. So if you guys - LA is known for - you guys wanna be dreamers, I just wanna tell you: don’t stop. Just keep making music, keep making art, keep making whatever you do and believe in yourself.

I’d rather be naïve, heartfelt and hopeful than resigned to say nothing for fear of misinterpretation and retribution.

I have that spasm thing. I wake up and go, ‘Aaarrrgh.’ I’ll get up and start pacing. I’ll walk through a room, and the TV’s on, and my face is on, and I start to freak out. I want to call a friend and say: “Did I lose my mind? I need perspective.’ I talked to Henry Rollins one day. I said, ‘Dude, I need some perspective real quick.’ And I felt really bad doing it. Because I was calling him up for the same reason kids call me up

It’s like my emotions they’re like a quarter flipped in the air,it’s just like black and white, black and white, you know, good and bad constantly…And you know, maybe by talking about things that may be a little dark or more on the negative side of our existence, by dealing with them, maybe that’s where I find my happiness.

“You know, if you feel like shit, and uh, if you feel like your existence is just hopeless… maybe just a fucking stain. Help somebody, it works every time. Trust me. Trust me. Trust me.”

As much as music brought you here, I am absolutely sure that a song or music can not change the world. Absolutely positive of this. It can have a slight effect, it gets us through, but it can not change the world. BUT you are! This many people! It is determined, it is positive, it is proven that this many people can change the world! How do we know? Because it is written, it is stitched in the fabric of our flag. It is welded in to our Constitution… that the people have the right to make change! And not only the right, but the responsibility to make change! You can hear this? Is this mic working? In this planet, you know, there’s a time and place for all this, right? This kind of talk? But… this HAS to be the time. It can’t get any worse, we can’t LET it get any worse, THIS has to be the time, and we’re right in the middle of America, and we have the power to change the whole world! Because America’s the superpower, right? You’re Americans. You could change the whole world. So this is the time, and this is… Do you agree with me? Is this the place? Thank you, because I’m saying this stuff just to even remind myself!
