PARAMORE star HAYLEY WILLIAMS has revealed the lyrics she wrote for band's last album were inspired by her awkward relationship with departed bandmate JOSH FARRO.
Farro and his brother Zac quit last month (Dec10), stating they were sick of being Williams' backing group, and now the singer has revealed the breakdown of her relationship with the siblings sparked a creative process on 2009's Brand New Eyes.
In an interview with MTV News, Williams says, "I would say that a large majority of those songs have to do with the relationship we had and then that we had to mend.
"It was really hard, because we were friends, and then going through a break-up and going through any kind of tension as a band really affected all the lyrics. There are a lot of specifics that I pulled from my experience with just feeling like my face was underneath a boot all the time."
And Williams, who wrote about being wrongly judged in songs such as Playing God and Ignorance, insists she penned the tracks to help female fans who are victimised by those closest to them.
She adds, "I think the point of the album was never to point out those things, but hopefully to encourage people who feel that way. Because I felt so alone in that fight, that I would never want, especially another young woman, to feel that way, because I know there are a lot of girls I've talked to, fans, go through the same thing in relationships and families, and it just sucks to feel kind of victimised."
