"I feel like smashing this room to bits,
Setting fire to the house,
And running off to the Sierra"
where I can find true love.

Never tell me that you love me
unless you fucking mean it
I need to run, I need to feel!
I need to start again

I ask, “when do you feel alive?”
"When the snow slashes your face,
and the wind ushers you on.
20 more hard years in this place,
all I know is the cold - winter, ice, my job and my wife
all I know is how to grow old"

Let's get our shit up to the mountains and be pioneers.
That look on your face tells me that's what you've been dreaming of for years.

Grow old.

I live with my thoughts
and wait for a day when everything i know becomes anything else.
The 21st century: a magical era in which one can live and die without
ever feeling the consequences of one's actions.
An extraordinary time in which one can live and die without
meaning anything at all.
I am more. More than a sack of shit, growing old.

For every breath I take from you, I will give back two.
Open your eyes and start again.
