I am truly sorry that I cannot be here in person to read out this list. Wait, who am I kidding?! I'm glad i'm not alive whilst this letter is being read. Too embrassing for me to say the least.
Anywho, I'm gone now right? Hopefully I've left a legacy behind. Maybe even a kid. I'd love to be a dad. If I've got a son or daughter, please know I love you. And if I don't, I regret that.
So confessions huh? Ray thinks we've all got something to hide. I bet he's the one hiding something knowing him. Prehaps he's trapped Bob in his 'Fro and thats why we don't see Bob anymore? I wish. I miss Bob alot. I hope he's here today. That would be nice.
My first confession isn't that big... Heck none of them are to be quite honest. I was never the prankster on tour or the centre of attention. Those roles were filled by Frank and Gee. I was just Mikey. The bassist with awkward knees who looked sorta naked without his trademark glasses. Yeah I've had time to work on my description of myself.
Anyway, Back when we filmed LOTMS (or life on the murder scene for all of you non-internet geeks)there was this one dude who talk Gerard to stay on his side of the road otherwise he'd knock Gerard out. That guy... Was me. I know what you're thinking... MIKEY WAY SCARED GERARD?! WHAT IS THIS FUCKERY?! But it's true. You shoulda seen the look on Gee's face. Pure shock horror. Kinda like the look on Frankie's face whenever we pass a dog re-homing centre on tour.
That reminds me, remember when we walked onto the bus after a show and the thing was filled with puppy dogs? And then Frank turned into a girly girl and rolled on the floor to let them lick him?
Yeah... Also, remember how we all blamed Frank? Well, It was me...
Before you get mad, It was only supposed to be like 7 of them but the dude though I had said seventy... Oops.
Well done to Frank though who made sure they all got re-homed.
And last but not least, my final confession is somewhat shocking. Especialy to the fanbase. For years I have been depicted as a unicorn loving simpleton but no more as I have something to say:
I ,Michael James Way, HATE unicorns.
I'm sorry I mislead you for so long. Heck, I even tried to tell you! But you didn't listen. Y'know what... I bet I'm surrounded by unicorns now as you guys mourn me. Damnit.
Shoulda told ya all sooner, For my sake.
Goodbyes now. I think goodbyes are always the hardest things in life. Whether you say them, write them, text them... It's always hard. Now that I think about it, This is probably gonna take me ages to write...
Better start now then...
Alicia- Oh Lici. I miss you more than you could ever know. I miss the nights we'd take hilarious photos with our cats and I miss knowing that everyday I can hear your voice or see your smile. What I'm trying to say is... I miss you. Like alot. You were my everthing Lici. You still are. I'll wait for you, wherever I am. It's okay if you can't wait for me though. I love you Lici. Goodbye Sweetie; But goodbye doesn't always mean for forever. Just make me proud xo.
Gerard- What can I say other than 'Amazing'. That word just desribes everything thats ever happened between us, the band, out lifes. Everything Gee. I'm gonna miss being your little brother Y'know. It's gonna be odd not being able to wake you up in the mornings with a fresh cup of coffee and a cheesy grin. I love you Gerard. Have a great life with LynZ and little B. Goodbye Bro. Till we meet again xxx
LynZ- Aah. Miss LynZ. Fun times we've had haven't we? I just wanna say your amazing at playing the bass. I can barely flip my hair out of my eyes and still concentrate on playing but you... You can do a fucking backflip! Amazing. Bandits lucky to have two amazing parents. Bye LynZ x
Bandit- Oh Bandit. I remember the first time I saw you. I was like 'Woah... I'm related to her? But she's so pretty!'. Yeah... Cheesey Right? I know you're gonna grow up to be a fantastic kid B. Never let anyone put you down. Love Uncle Mikes.
Frank- I honestly don't know what to say Frank. I almost hurts to know that as you hear this I wont be able to see you be wild and crazy on stage ever again. I'm gonna miss that alot y'know. You helped Gerard alot during the 'Three Cheers' era and for that, I owe you so much. Thanks Frankie. You're One of A Kind... An Iero!
Ray- thanks for this idea dude. It makes me feel good that I've got all of this out of the way before I pass. You really are one smart dude. I'm gonna miss your afro man. And your puffy lips that quiver when you laugh. I find that hilarious dude... And you know it :)
Bob- ...We haven't spoke in so long... Please know that you were missed so much by us all. I hope your life turned out as you hoped. I also hope that you knew that there was always a space for you in or band. G'bye Robert.
Jamia- We never spoke much but you made Frank happy. You made us pie once. It was very tasty. Even though I didn't knwo you well, I'll miss ya. See ya Jam.
So I guess thats it. My letter done. I miss you all and can't wait to see you all again.
All my love and a little bit extra.
P.S: I reckon we should have started vampire money with '3 2 1, WE CAME TO PARTAKE IN SEXUALL ACTIVITIES!'.... I'll let you all think about that as I rot.
