cody: writing music

When I write music, it's sometimes by myself and sometimes with the band. It's usually by myself.

From where a lot of us stand, and we're Christians, we get stuff thrown at us all the time. People say, "Well, you're not a Christian, blah blah blah," and they think they know what we are. So we get judged a lot, and we talk about that a lot. And a lot of us have had a lot of past with drugs, and we talk about that. And we talk about God, life experiences we've had, pretty much.

There's one song we have, it's about us being judged by other people. It's called "Persecute," and it's got things from the Bible. There's a story in the Bible, Jeremiah, where God tells him to do something. I can't remember what it was, but he told the people, and they said, "Well, that's not from God, that's from the devil. You're possessed by a demon." But he strongly believed that it was from God, he knew it was from God, but people would just always say, "You don't know what you're talking about." And that's what people tell us, stuff like that -- we don't know what we're doing, we're not really Christians. That Christians don't dress like that or Christians don't have hair like that. Stupid stuff. God doesn't care what you're wearing -- if I'm wearing this or a tux, you know, he doesn't care.
