Tonight somehow the rumor got started I was going to kill myself. But I've died so much in the past year, I don't think there's much left to kill.


I'm becoming what I used to be afraid of. When the whole world wants to destroy you, every day is your last day and every performance is your final one. The Antichrist isn't just me, or just one person. It's all of us, a collective state of min that America needs to have awakened in them. I want to wake it in them. that's the purpose of this tour, maybe even my life, no make Americans realize they don't have to believe in something just because they've been told it all their lives. You can't have someone who's never had sex or drugs telling you it's wrong. Only through experience can you determine your own morality. Humanity isn't about constantly having to see forgiveness for being human; humanity is leading a guiltless existence as an individual. That is Armageddon, because, to Christianity, if you forsake the idea of God and believe in yourself, the world is over.
