Arctic Monkeys ~ Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?

"We’ve been going at this thing for 6 years and 10 months now. I use the term “celebrated” loosely but we just celebrated the five year anniversary of our first full length album, Can’t Stop Won’t Stop. It’s a trip man, it’s crazy how time flies, it really is. I suppose it teaches you a lot of things. I’m not gonna fucking lecture you. But it’s important to take a second and really appreciate everything that we have, man we’re very fortunate. I’m not saying we but I’m including all of you when I say that we’re very fortunate to have been given the opportunities that we have and living in the place that we do. I think we take a lot of things for granted as a society and I think, you know bottom line is we’re all in this shit together. And I know things get fucking terrible, I know things get sad, and you feel like you’ve got a lot of responsibilities and obligations. But if you really think about it, we know about this much (holds up fingers separated by about an inch) of the universe, and that means we’re this fucking small in the scheme of things (holds up fingers hardly separated). So just to be alive and to be breathing is something that I’m trying not to take for granted and I recommend you do the same thing."
