'I should not go walking alone'
Now, a video has surfaced of Bennington in conversation with Music Choice, discussing how he dealt with his demons and the inspiration behind the song ‘Heavy’.
“My whole life, I’ve just felt a little off,” said Bennington. “I find myself getting into these patterns of behaviour or thought – especially when I’m stuck up here [in my head]; I like to say that ‘this is like a bad neighbourhood, and I should not go walking alone’.
“Most of my problems are problems that I cause myself. That’s what that song’s about – that time when you consciously look at that. Once you acknowledge what it is, you can separate yourself from it and do something about it, as opposed to just being in it.”
