"They just come from real life, real feelings. Anything that is negative that is happening inside my head that I need to get out some how.. I need to vent all the negative stuff that is going on in side my head, it is the best and safest  way for me to do it. I channel my shit feelings to the music and at least try to turn it into something positive."
