Heartwarming: Andrew W.K.
- The song "Totally Stupid" from The Wolf contains a surprisingly deep and poetic final section about personal empowerment and self-acceptance.
If you have a heart that's in painDon't be afraidYou're not to blameThere's a better world inside of usWhere we always thought it wasYou don't need to hideYou can open up your eyesAnd you'll discoverThat there is another world.
- While his advice column on Village Voice is already full of well-spoken, insightful responses, Andrew's response to a question about depression is both extremely eye-opening and extremely accurate. Why is it here in the Heartwarming section? Because the last three paragraphs are pure, honest sincere emotional support from the man himself, who also suffers from severe depression—he's not just saying it to offer sympathy, he's been there.
"It tells us that it's all going to be OK. That you will be OK. That you already are. Never forget this. I love you. Stay strong."
