    ya know i have to say this... a rant...

    recently ive been writing alot of music. it has been all over the palce as far as lyrics and such. when i write lyrics i write them to where you dont really know what im saying, and you have to read deeper into them than what is presentable to the common ear. this makes it to where basically anyone can relate to the lyrics in any way with any situation. its a cool effect. what pisses me off those is i dont cuss in my songs. very seldum do i. if i do i dont use a cuss word to express anything but emotion. im sick of alot of people like saying that songs like that are too vulgar and such. i had a guy tell me that my shit was too vulgar... but this was coming from a hardcore christian who wants to judge everything everyone does. i am a christain... but i just dont see where people get off on judging people. that is clearly something we arent supose to do. so my question is... just because i like rock music, and cuss, and talk about sex, and relationships in my songs that makes me a non believer? thats what i had someone tell me today. i think its BS

    Dude- pay those people no mind. I, myself, am a Catholic. I cuss, drink, smoke, play in a rock band, think about/have sex, divorced.... That has no bearing whatsoever on my beliefs. I believe what I choose to believe and I don't have to explain myself to anyone. Neither should you.

    thanks man. i dont really let it affect me its just i hate when people judge. and that goes for anyone. i am what i am, and i know where im going when i die lol. and whether it be heaven or hell, its not anyone elses place to tell me im wrong for what i do.

    i guess alot of people dont like me because im honest lol. i dont talk shit or go behind peoples backs with stuff. what i tell you is something i would tell someone else. and alot of people get jealous of people with those qualities i think.

    and i think its damn cool u do all those things and are still a catholic at heart. rock on brotha.

    wow. this thread could take a left turn real quick...

    only you and god know if you are a believer or a non-believer. so, in your heart, are you a believer? you'll never hear me say, 'i believe' because it really doesn't matter what i believe but what god's ground rules are. the best availability we have of his ground rules is the bible. the bible discourages cussing directly and some of the other things you mention indirectly. does this mean you're going to hell? no. that's why jesus paid our fine on the cross. as long as any violation of god's word or 'sin' is repented for, the bible says you're good to go. keep in mind though, that repenting means to turn away from sin and turn closer to god...knowing in you're heart it's wrong and truly not wanting to do it again, whatever it may be...it's different from just asking forgiveness or apologizing.

    I don't often curse in my lyrics either...I think I have a curse word in maybe one song but I have written a couple songs that were pretty blunt. One of them has the phrase "watch your porn...masturbate" and that one always raises a few eyebrows but it's a very serious, gritty song. Hell, if Billy Joel can say "masturbate" in Captain Jack, I can say "masturbate" in my song. There's also a song where I say "do a line" and yeah, sometimes people go "man, this guy is vulgar" or whatever but that's not the case. Sometimes, my songs are blunt...most of the time not so much. Songs have a life of their own, they tell me how they want to sound and what they want the words to be...i do my best to listen and stay out of the way.

    Screw other people. I don't write for them, I write for me.
    Stay out of it, dude.

    yea well my best known song is called "sex" and the chorus is "Your sex is like your weapon, sex is like your drug, sometiems you just dont follow through and a little is not enough" and basically im not talking about sex. im talking about self respect and someone not picking up their slack in a relationship. and it coinsides with like a girl who jsut wants sex all the time but sucks in the relationship aspect.

    and like i do belive... but to me god like you said in a round about way is a forgiving god. i dont look as god as this overpowering being who has his finger on you al lthe time and waving that figer at you saying no thats wrong... i look at him as a friend... someone for guidence. who forgives, and helps me through my every day life. alot of people cant relate to that i guess.

    i really appreciate all the feedback tho. you guys rock

    I'm more worried with what people hear come out of my mouth than God. It's hard to tell from all of the various translations, but it seemed to me what God was more concerned with was people taking his (and ultimately Jesus') name in vain. So I try very hard not to say those things, though with kids a part of my life, it's not as easy as it used to be! But the other words - they weren't even invented when the Bible was written, so how can I know for sure God didn't want me to say them. So if I'm around adults that I know probably won't be offended, I don't worry about saying "fuck", but if I'm around my Little League team, I keep it clean.
