I gather that you're a vegetarian and that you don't really indulge in any vices. Have you ever had any vices? I just wonder because you're pretty great at writing unscrupulous characters in your songs, and it seems that some of that knowledge can only come from experience.

i've gone through a lot of challenges at various times i've been hungry, broke, in jail, addicted to drugs and alcohol, beat up, ripped off, flew through a car window at a high rate of speed, didn't have no where to go and so on. i gave that life up a pretty good spell ago. i have a meditation practice that prohibits drugs, alcohol, meat [eggs], tobacco, and you need to lead a low impact lifestyle and stuff like that.
i still have challenges, and am not a master. i just keep at it. i don't know what else to do. a lot of my poetry comes from that conflict.
