“When I look at some of the things that I have written, it’s just me looking back and going “Why am I so confused?” And “Why am I hurting” because I don’t want to hurt, I want to be peaceful.”
— Jim James (via stripperlikegaza)

“As long as we’ve been alive, the world has been hugely tilted in favor of masculinity and is totally fucking itself because of it. That’s nowhere close to being over, but hopefully, we’re turning the spirits back on their axis to make it even.”

(from Jim James Top 40 Hits Live!, put together by Bermuda Hitchhiker)

“I never ask Jim about his lyrics, and I usually don’t even see them until we get copies (of the CD booklet), so it was really interesting to hear him talk about certain songs.”

State Of The Art (A.E.I.O.U.), Jim James

“Lots of people like to write about how we’re crazy hippies from Louisville, Kentucky, with long hair, but they don’t write about how they felt like their brains were oozing out of their ears when they heard a song or how they wanted to cry or laugh or throw up, really feel like ripping somebody’s head off, or making love I think lots of the music industry and lots of things are wasted because people aren’t conveying emotion anymore, they’re just writing about what a band looks like or how many people were there. That stuff doesn’t matter.”

I use to listen to a few songs by My Morning Jacket not to long ago.  The other day my friend sent me this song (Different video) and I fell in love with it.  The I found this video of the song and the story behind it.  This song is the most heartbreaking, emotional song I have ever heard.  So much respect to these guys.
