To you, they're just a band. They just play
music. They are a bunch of tattooed freaks. But
to me, they are the reason that l still breathe.
They are the only hope I have when everything
has fallen apart. They are the bright light in the
otherwise pitch dark. Their message, their
music, their lyrics pick me up out of my
hopelessness. The fact they have
accomplished their goals. that they have over
some much of what I have to suffer through...
Well, that makes me believe in a future. To you.
it may be stupid to cry when you see them live,
or when you meet them for the ﬁrst time. But
for me, it‘s like coming face to face with the
hero that saved my life. Go ahead and look at
me as an obsessed, crazed tan. Tell me I‘m
fucking weird, that I need to get a life. But they
will always' always be my heroes. They will
always be the band that saved me.
