I want to make something completely new. I want to work so hard that everything of me burns away, like the chemical in the match. Which leaves what really is me, or what I think is me. I just want to achieve my own vibe. And it’s nothing arty, nothing lofty, it’s just fucking different, and I want to leave this world behind a little so that maybe I’ll see that it’s bigger and I haven’t left it at all.

Maybe that’s why I get frustrated sometimes, because there’s no one to blame for how our lives have turned out. I wouldn’t change any of the things I’ve done, but at the same time I wish things were different than they are. I have no regrets, but there’s also no satisfaction in where I am.
