“fought not to let it get pounded out of me…”

Interviewer: Do you think everyone is born with an equal appetite for life?

Captain Beefheart: I don’t know. That’s a really good question. I can only speak for myself, but I’ve fought not to let it get pounded out of me. A lot of people allow themselves to become dull because they fear pain, but pain is a form of awareness. A lot of people don’t want to be more aware though, and it seems that as time goes on, more and more people don’t want to know.
