When I couldn't pay the bills, David and I lost our apartment. We slept wherever we could, including many nights I spent in the bed of a pickup truck, until Amy graduated and we could all move away to follow our dreams.
None of it mattered to me. I'd give up anything. Eventually we found ourselves signed, living in L. But a cruel fact of life is that the person you are at 15 doesn't resemble the person you are at 18, and 21…. I did everything in my power to put that person in the ground.
Sometimes you grow together, and sometimes you grow apart. We were very young people in a very stressful situation.. I believe we both contributed to the resentment of the deterioration of our friendship that quickly turned into a downward spiral of animosity, conflicting opinions, and a very volatile environment.
By the time we went on tour to support 'Fallen', it sadly was over. We had parted ways with David, nearly severing the relationship with the someone that was a brother to me. In that time, being so young and on this amazing ride, I became someone I didn't like. And had no power to change. I'd like to believe that looking back, Amy would have handled things differently now as well. We had such opposing desires and personalities that mixed with the pride of youth and inexperience and an extreme amount of insecurity and loss of direction on my part led to an all-out war.
We were completely blind to the fact that we were poisoning the very thing we held most dear. I was an awful person, and Amy reacted in kind. At that time, there was no way we would ever complete another record together.
It was highly probable we wouldn't last the remainder of the tour. Neither one of us willing to back down. Every emotion I felt manifested itself as anger. I was devastated by what we had become.
Everything I based my existence on, an unreachable dream come true… was a nightmare. And I was powerless to stop it. If one of us didn't leave, my one chance to leave something in this world greater than myself would be lost. I had tried before, out of ignorance, pride, and resentment to convince Amy that she should leave. I was hurt, and wanted her to hurt like me. There was no way I would ever let someone walk on that stage and sing your lyrics.
I had become a shell of myself. It would have become a joke. It broke me in a way I could never truly describe. My entire existence, my self worth, my identity was this music, this band. I have no idea where this came from, as on the night of the 22nd, Amy made her wishes clear, sending me a message saying, and I quote, 'Get on a plane, and never come back. The music I loved most in this world. It's as if no one even considered the fact my life now had no plan or purpose.
Walking away meant forfeiting a winning lottery ticket. A dream so big it's unfathomable it would even happen once in a lifetime. And the one and only chance to truly realize the reward of of all my work, faith and dedication. Getting on that plane meant when I landed, every single thing my life was built upon was gone.
And there was no delusion or hope that I would ever reach that pinnacle again. It is remarkably rare that a person is ever faced with a decision like that in a lifetime. And to top it all off, I was just a fucking kid. I went quietly and peacefully. There was absolutely no argument over rights and ownership.
I gave it to Amy free and clear. I asked for no buyout, no negotiations. Just a clean break. When the very fans I had such a deep connection through the music I helped create with decided that it was mandatory to pick a side, leading to an overwhelming backlash of distaste for me… I said nothing. I'm very content with my career and personal relationships. The only thing missing from my life was the satisfaction of playing the music I love most live..
So I called the guys up.
