It’s like being trapped in one space, like one point, and you can’t go backwards and you can’t go forwards, and you can’t go in any direction, your absolutely trapped in one particular space in time and you can not move on. Because I use music to move on, to progress though life, so when I lost that I lost the ability to progress or anything, so you start to lose the ability to interact and it becomes like a vicious circle because your just like this all the time.
No it’s just every time you go to do a piece of music or read a book or go for a drive in your car, your constantly thinking that your trapped, your stuck, your like a full stop and you’ll never be anything else. I think the only way you deal with it eventually, is that you just forget about it, you choose not to have a problem about it, you choose to go and see your friends and you go out and get drunk. Enjoy life and just forget about it.
