Paranoia and the Art of Complete Emotional Breakdown : Soothing Sounds for the Dead Of Night

So you've been stuck in some stinking room for hours and hours; and the sun went down so long ago you don't even know whether it will ever come up again. And you've smoked all the cigarettes you can, and the lightbulbs have all blown and covered your thin blue blanket in glass and pieces of hot filament, and you pull those covers up tight, tight around your head and you're looking for a space to put your mouth and breathe, but you keep forgetting that you are already dead.

You are looking for help, but we cannot help you.
