Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be?
And my biggest fear in life is letting anybody down and all I hope is that this music helps you in one way or another. Whether that be with your personal problems, whether that be just getting you through you through your day today. And if I am going to tell you one thing about being that I have learned, all these years that I have been in the fucking thick of it, it is that if you keep it to yourself, it will fucking tear you apart ,limb, from limb. It will rip your heart out, it will eat your fucking soul alive. I don’t care how you do it, but if you have the same pain that I feel, just express it. For me that expression is Beartooth. That expression is the heart that I make. For you it can be whatever it means , to you it can be your music, it could be painting, it could be the way you dress, it could be just the way you carry yourself. But you need to fucking express it. If I’m telling you anything tonight, if there’s anything that you need to hear, to not fucking keep that pain locked up, ever. I love all you guys more than you’ll ever fucking know in a million years. Thank you so much.
I saw Beartooth in concert 11/11/16. Caleb said this. It was so sweet and inspirational. I cried.
If ever there is a tomorrow when we’re not together, there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart, I’ll always be with you.
