“This song talks about how he knows how much the drug has affected him and how he must kill himself to end his addiction. This song also shows his struggles to end this addiction by saying, “I yell and tell it (drugs) that it’s not my friend; I tear it down tear it down, and then it’s born again.” His constant struggle is also shown in the music video which shows a man waking up and then finding himself in the same position at the end of the video which means that it is a cycle that never changes and that never will change.”
“I think one of the most beautiful things about live music is
that, for the period of time those people are in the place, assuming
that all people came there because they love music, they’re all
generally feeling the same thing. They’re all feeling good at the same
time, they’ve all put all their thoughts about their everyday life out
of their head, all their worries, they’re just not on their mind. The power of music has joined all their consciousnesses into one thing, you know? They’re literally functioning as one organism.”

“When my oldest daughter was 17 years old, and preparing to go to college, I had another little girl named Sunny. It has been the most amazing experience to raise up one little whippersnapper, have her grow up and leave the nest (not really), and then segue right into another little girl. I learned a lot the first time around, and I think I am a little better at being a present papa. But, it’s not about me, it’s about her. Every morning when I get up bleary-eyed and stumble into the kitchen to make her breakfast, and tell her: “for crying out loud stop fooling around and go brush your teeth!” And we do our morning dance and drive to school listening to the terrible pop music that she likes, I know in the depths of my being, that nothing ever could make me happier. I am in awe of my kids, and to all the other papas out there I say “hooray!” - Flea about Sunny. - 14th June, 2014.

“Life seems terrible and disappointing, so you need to find something you need to make you stick around. Music that makes me happiest is the saddest music, with the most emotional feel.” - Josh Klinghoffer.

“Life shouldn’t be a struggle.Life should be a flowing smooth thing. This isn’t a hard world to live in, this isn’t hard dimension to live in. If you surround yourself with the right people and if you do the right things, and if you are as good of a person as you are capable of to other people; you will find that the World will make a place for you. What happens to you is dictated by the things you think about. You should always think good things and always look for the good in the World. If you look for the bad in the World, you will always find something bad. But if you look for the good you will find it, it is there”
