When I first heard these words come out of his mouth I was in a really tough patch and I wanted nothing more than to down a bottle of pills and never wake up again. Austin Carlile and his lyrics have been there for me through a lot- he’s been my favorite musician since I was in the 5th grade. Now I’m soon to be a Junior in High School. After these words left his mouth I knew I was going to have them tattooed on my body forever because these words mean so much to me. These words kept me here. These words give me hope EVERY single day. I don’t give two fucks for their fan base, or every girl who claims him as their hero- this man is my #1 inspiration, my hero, the man I look up to. I understand he’s done some imperfect things and done quite a few fucked up things but he’s only human and people make mistakes, I see that and I understand. This man, his band, and this quote mean a lot to me. Nothing you can say or do will change my mind.
