Sometimes you get the feeling that people in bands are just pandering to certain crowds — If I say this, then people will react — but it’s truly not like that for me. Everything I’m saying and playing is as real as I can be, and I feel like that’s hard to convey. Someone could tell me that a song I wrote sucked, and that’s fine with me — most music is not for most people — but when someone specifically takes a lyric and makes fun of it or makes light of it… That’s incredibly personal for me. That’s hard for me, because it took a lot out of me. So I think the big thing is that I just don’t really pay attention to what people may or may not think, because I write at such a high volume that there’s no buffer for that. Boom, there I am. That’s kind of how it goes.
