Welcome to the Abyss

Hey, hey, hey, welcome to Triple A, and no, it’s not car insurance.

Death or Resurrection. Decide.

I saw it coming about a thousand miles away, and yet, I still willingly walked headfirst into this maelstrom…Why?
Why do you keep repeating the same cycles when you know exactly how they will end?
Because you still romanticize bullshit. That’s why. But being aware of this fact, on its own, is not enough to make you change course…
