  • Is it so easy to kill, so routine, for no apparent reason?

    Just because you killed once, must you kill another and another?
    Anywhere, anyplace, anytime?

    Does this morbid fascination with mortality, a shotgun in hand,
    make you the supreme decider of who lives and dies?

    Do you feel in control, powerful or justified in your actions?

    Your random havoc, your crazed rampage, what could possibly be the reason?

    Look at you, only twenty years old when you pulled the trigger on yourself and killed what was left of you.
