It used to be such an easy thing to do to get up on a stage and play a song or two for anybody who wanted to listen to the music that we could make,
but lately everybody’s burdens are too heavy to hold, and it can be tempting to lighten the load onto someone else’s back and then turn them around to rub it in their face. And all the time in-between we spend on our machines telling everyone what’s going on. And all their attention divides among the minutiae,
and I’d never get a chance to write this song if I was interested at all.

So Leo, I’m so sorry I done the things I done. You’re a better friend than any man could ask for, and now I’m afraid that I’m not even one. Do you know that, I’m so sorry I done the things I do, and now I am asking you - begging you to stay… to stay as one of my friends.

Last night I heard about a friend of mine who went off to the war and died a horrible death. I’m a horrible friend for not convincing him to stick around. And the battles that I face are not unlike a war that’s taking place in my skull, and my body and bones, all apart are they torn every direction all over town. And all my loved ones and all my friends risk becoming casualties of misdirected rage, but when Dr. Jeckel becomes Mr. Hyde you better run and hide cause he will not be confined to this cage, no matter how hard he wants to.
