I often get ideas for songs on the tour bus at odd times. Like at 6am when no one is around, I'd just write.
As supportive as my hometown is, in my high school, there are people who would probably walk up to me and punch me in the face. There's a select few that will never like me. They don't like what I stand for. They don't like somebody who stands for being sober, who stands for anything happy. They're going to be negative no matter what.
My experience with songwriting is usually so confessional, it's so drawn from my own life and my own stories.
It's true that I've never had a burning desire to rebel against my parents.
