I love walking down the street and seeing faces and drama and happiness and sadness and dirt and cleanliness.
Refusing to ask for help when you need it is refusing someone the chance to be helpful.
Secrecy is the enemy of efficiency, but don't let anyone know it.
The most important thing to a lot of people, is to belong to something that's hip or whatever. To be a part of something that's not society, just a clique.
There's more to light than the opposite of dark.
As a songwriter, oddly enough, my influences were people like Bob Dylan, The Velvet Underground, and Buddy Holly. Some psychedelic stuff, too.
I've always been a fan of poetry. I grew up with Lawrence Ferlinghetti and the Beat poets. I really followed that stuff for a while. I just love the way people threw words around like they were painting.

People tell me all the time that I look forbidding or aloof. That doesn't bother me much - I am fairly private, withdrawn, and... distant, I guess. But, um, I think that's okay.
I could never be a country person, sitting around trees trying to write a song. I would rather be in the middle of society, whether it's growing or crumbling.
