Everything that happened to me has been a paradox for life. The very things that I should have done would have been the trap. The very things I might have given into, that demanded, that said, this is your life. I mean, this is your only way to survive, are the things I found hardest to end. ‘Cause I believed in something else. You have to work like mad to make people understand… Even if I don’t make it, you know, I really insist on believing, and then I fall off the edge because there’s nobody else to follow it. And I would just fall off the edge.
