I've made up my mind and I will be leaving.
Leaving this cruel, dark world for the soulless to share.
But first...

Women will shriek and watch their husbands bleed.
Children will cry and watch their mothers die.
Because tonight...
Tonight we all go to hell!
Why?

I have to let go of what happened to my love.
I am taking out on everyone else all the problems I've brought on myself.
When I made your heart melt.
My belle, we soon will meet again.

There's nothing left for me to lose except confusion.
I'm finished trying to tell myself this will go away.
There's no one left to talk me down.
My feet are slipping...

One day I'll hope my name doesn't bring back memories.
Of the day that I left her.
Goodbye, so long.
My heart belongs to the one I am chasing after.
For better, or even for worse, remember me forever...

Now the only question left is how to take you all down with me.
The coroner will have his hands full tonight.
That is if he is not among the dead.

Dead will choke the streets with such vulgarity that grown men will weep.
And then you will find the end is drawing night.

The dizziness stuns me, would someone please distract me?
Can I really get through this?
Can I really betray myself?

There's sweat on my hands and a knife at my throat.
And as the blade bites my skin Annabel appears...

    "Finding it nearly impossible to come to grips with the emergence and confession of the Thespian, the Artist gives up on his fleeting fantasy that Annabel could still be alive. Without his vengeance, his anger, his insanity and without the chance of Annabel coming back from the dead, he attempts to decipher a way to join her in death. With thoughts of suicide on his mind, the Artist contemplates storming the town with a rage unmatched by anyone. He must draw out the Thespian to die heroically as he avenges the death of his lover. Wandering the town as the feeling of defeat weakens his every step, the Artist falls to his knees in an abandoned alley. Mere seconds before his plan comes to fruition, she appears."

    "i found it impossible to grip with the emergence and confession of the thespian. Immediately my fantasy of annabel being alive was given up and up in smoke.

    Without my vengeance, anger, insanity and without the chance of annabel coming back from the dead, i attempted to find a way to join her in death. With thoughts of suicide i contemplate storming the town with a rage unmatched by anyone.

    “i must try to kill the thespian. ” i thought “in order to die heroically trying to avenge annabel. It’s worth the try. ” as i wandered through town the feeling of defeat weakens my every step.

    I ended up falling on my knees in an abandoned alley. Mere seconds before my plan came to achievement, she appeared. "
