You said Antichrist Superstar almost killed you. Was this one easier?
It was different. As far as the drug use and everything else, on the last record and tour I was sacrificing my own happiness just for art; whatever you want to call it. I realized I didn't have to do that. I don't think I was being honest-though I'm not saying I'm being honest on this record. It wasn't as painful as the last one; it was a lot more fun-but lyrically some of the material on this one is a lot darker than the last one.
