“How many people in this world are like me?”
From a distance we look much the same
Wondering if cold is the absence of something because
I’ve felt this forever

After a while you learn that everything stops
We’re ageing and we all die alone
The constant tick tock of lifeless repeating irritates
We’re all so fucking dead

Heartless means little to those who have
Caved chests, bound eyes and broken hands
I myself am fabricated
Has this meant nothing?

    General Commentthis is based on the chapter of the same name in American Psycho.. "How many people in this world are like me?" is said by Patrick Bateman. the last two lines connote sentiments raised by Bateman in his 'confession'.. and "After a while you learn that everything stops" is also another quote..
