It’s a little more complex, but it’s the idea of knowing that there’s something else out there. It’s very liberating. You don’t feel trapped in any certain way. It comes from me studying different things and different people. Hunter S. Thompson said he would go crazy if he didn’t know he could kill himself at any given minute in this world. That’s the extreme example: that you feel that trapped, but to know you have an outlet, and that release that gives you some comfort and direction to move in when you’re alive. When I used to live in the hood, I lived on Madison street. You could look down the street and the hood was literally fucked up. You had drugs, and prostitutes, and police, and these different things, but you look down the street and you can see the Sears Tower, the skyline of Chicago. And you knew this wasn’t it.
