Schizophrenia and AFI

The more I listen to AFI, the more I feel connected to the members of the band. I mean, I really think they’re my friends or people that I hang out with on a day-to-day basis. It’s almost as if Davey’s my psychologist helping me get a move on with whatever’s been going on with me mentally. Jade wants me to have fun with life. Adam wants to take the place of my deceased father and Hunter wants to teach me the shownizzle of life. It’s like a neverending psychosis. I love AFI deeply so! I just haven’t quite grasped how to harness the band instead of it running rampant in my mind. Does anyone else feel this way?
