what would you expect from a comic called "Justice case Files"?

i would expect a shitty Law and Order Rip-off. only with even MORE dark tones and Rob Liefeld art.

well thankfully we're spared THAT train wreck in favour of another train wreck. and this train is carrying propaganda.

Justice Case Files is nothing more than a bad PSA in comic fourm about law. its put out but a non-profit group called "National Center for State Courts" to "educate" teenagers about law and order. and by "educate" i mean pump mindless propaganda into them and hope they're stupid enough to take it in as fact.

the nice old folks at Wired.comhave set a PDF file for us all, so that we may all be "educated" on the PURE EVILS that is that which is discussed in this comic.

http://www.wired.com/images_blogs/thre atlevel/files/propogandacomic.pdf

and what said pure evils discussed in said comic?

MUSIC PIRACY!

*dun dun DUUNNNN*

...

yes, of all the things this Law PSA comic could have talked about, Drugs, Murder, Rape, Child Abuse, Robbery, Grand Theft Auto, or hell, even Cyber Bullying they choose to talk about the dangers of illegal downloading. PERFECT.

with all that said, i shall give you an overview of said comic, tell you all the things i find stupid about it. so that you don't actually have to read this propagandic shit pile.

---

i don't have much to say about the cover.

the young woman in prison grab is our main character, Megan, or should i say: THE HARDENED COPYRIGHT INFRINGING CRIMINAL BRINGING UNTOLD TERROR ONTO THE INNOCENT HARD WORKING MILLIONARE "ARTISTS".

other than that there reall isn't HOLY CRAP! is that Aunt May helping the Black Man hold the over sized Sign? and is that Commissioner Gordon in the backround?

could this comic not only be a bad PSA but also a giant Marvel powerless-Supporting Character VS DC powerless-Supporting character event?

anyway, our comic opens to- AUNT MAY? as shes apparantly being thrown out her house by the city.

i mean seriously, how could you throw Aunt May out of her house? what would Spiderman do? oh nevermind he'd probably sell his soul to the devil to get rid of her Mortgage.

Aunt May comments that she wishes her husband Morgan were still around. and she won't give her house up without a fight.

okay i know that isn't really Aunt May but i'm calling her thaat anyway, it makes the comic more bearable to think actually intresting characters and plotlines are connected to this garbage.

on the next page we see Aunt May going down Stairs while our Protagonist Megan is making toast, Aunt May thinks "Megan is such a sweet girl, so inteligent" and then on the next panel we see her carrying a piece of toast in her mouth.

apparantly Megan is in a hurry because shes late to school, Aunt May offers to drive her but Megan declines the offer and says that she'll just catch a ride on the second bus.

Aunt May thinks "i want to share the letter about the hearing with her, but i don't want to upset her."

if only Spiderman was here, he'd not only break it to her gently but add some actual redeeming value to this stupid comic.

Megan kisses Aunt May on the cheek and goes to school, where apparantly Morgan Freeman works as a teacher.

Freeman tells Morgan that he's immpressed with her wrok and that he didn't even teach the technique she used.

through a dull conversation we learn that Megan's Father was a Pharmacist and that bother her Parents died when she was Six years old, and that her Grandmother takes care of her now.

wow, the only way this can even be REMOTELY intresting is by pretending a boring character from Spiderman and the narrator from March of the Penguin are in this comic. thats just sad.

Morgan Freeman tells her that if she keeps her good work up she can work in the School's research lab next year. gee, it looks like our friend Morgan has been through alot of hardships but has a promising future! i can SO relate to that, i hope she doesn't get caught up with the wrong crowd or anything!

oh, and apparantly his name is Professor Mulhern, but i'm just going to pretend he's Morgan Freeman.

so onto the next page where we see Megan and her friends are having a Slumber Party or something. gee, i wonder if THIS is the part where she gets into the wrong side of the law? THIS COMIC SURE DOES HAVE ME HOOKED.

one of her friends comments that a band called "Cruel Mantra" is coming out with a new album. apparantly Megan's friends are into fake bands that double as plot devices.

but then things take a turn for the worst when her friend (who's name is Henry) tells them he's DOWNLOADING it! *gasp* Henry, you monster! how dare you STEAL that potential money from all those poor Millionare talentless hacks?

Megan comments that he shouldn't be doing that, as it is illegal. (atleast i assume its Megan talking as theres no pointer on her speech bubble.)

Henry proceeds to comment "I won't get Busted, Megan. the cyber police aren't looking for us poor Collage kids" you know, poor collage kids, like the guys who made Napster! "we don't have pockets."

thats right! the RIAA is too busy going after olds ladies, Children and single moms!

oh poor Henry, if only you knew that it doesn't matter how much money you have, its if you have any at all.

i also love how Henry has the most evil look on his face while saying this, they're demonizing illegal downloaders so much Henry may aswell be Mephisto trying to get Spiderman to give him his Marriage.

gee, i sure do wish i was reading Spiderman right now. hell, i wish i was reading Youngblood instead of this propogandic crap.

Megan Comments "well, Cruel Mantra IS my favourite band" OH NO! is Megan going to...THE DARK SIDE? will she down the wrong path?

the answer? WHO THE FUCK CARES? i don't give even the slightest bit of a damn for these generic cookie-cutter after-school special idiots, theres that makes these characters devolped or intresting.

Megan went through some tough times and i guess THATS a step in the right direction, but she has NOTHING else going for her, Batman has dead Parents but he's devolped and intresting. this just blows.

this comic has a way with reminding me of actually decent comics i'd much rather be reading.

reading this rag is a chore, the only reason i'm still reading this idiotic trite is so i can tell you all how stupid it is, which in itself is stupid, I'M BEING SUCKED INTO A VORTEX OF STUPIDITY!

the next page deals with Aunt May;s fight to keep her house under her ownship but you know what? i really don't give a crap about what the hell Aunt May seems to be doing.

the comic cuts to a few months later, Aunt May is leaving Megan home alone while she goes out to, i don't know, flirt with Deadpool or something.

great, thats THREE comics so far that i'd rather be reading.

Megan is talking on the Phone with her Friend, and it turns out she downloaded 2,000 songs illegally. which is a ludicrous number but i won't question it since and even more stupid inaccuraccie is going to come up soon.

anyway, a Police man comes up to her door and tells she has a court date for illegally downloading 2,000 songs.

back to the civil case, apparantly Stan Lee is the Plantiff lawyer.

if this is one of Stan Lee's actual Cameos, i'm extremly dissipointed in him.

anyway, on the next page we see Aunt May come home from the completely unintresting civil case, only to discover the horid truth: MEGAN IS GOING TO COURT FOR ILLEGAL DOWNLOADING! they hug and Aunt May tells her everything is gonna be alright.

by GOD! Spiderman! that hardened illegal downloading criminal has Aunt May! you gotta save her!

any way, turn to the next few pages and BLAH BLAH CIVIL CASE BLAH and then we see Aunt May is talking to the city's attourney and says money is tight and that she can't afford a Lawyer, so they've been given a Public defender, named Tom Peters.

wait, Tom Peters? from Tom goes to the Mayor? as if they didn't already have ENOUGH unintentional cameos.

the guy assures her Tom Peters is great and that her Grandchild will be fine.

then we cut to the court case, where the prosecuter (Terry Williams) is giving his opening statament.

"Many consider Illegal downloading a victimless crime, but NOTHING could be further from the truth!"

yeah! think all those poor innocent Billionares who lose POTENTIONAL money every time you downloading the only good song from a shitty overpriced Album from a band whose only had a handful of good songs anyway.

our "HEROIC" prosecuter recommends a HUGE fine and 2 years in jail for Criminal copyright infringement.

but, wait...

Criminal copyright infringement is for people who DISTURBUTE copyrighted meterial, NOT PEOPLE WHO DOWNLOAD IT.

this ISN'T a crimminal case, THIS IS A FUCKING CIVIL MATTER, THIS SHOULD NOT IVOLVE THE STATE.

the entire POINT of this comic is to educate kids about the law and yet YOU FUCKING IDIOTS DIDN'T EVEN DO YOUR FUCKING RESEACH BEFORE YOU MADE IT. DUMBASSES. FUCK YOU.

instead of throwing to moronic mis-handled case out, the Judge decides to give Megan 3 years of probation and 200 hours of community service. WHICH IS IDIOTIC CONSIDERING THAT THIS SHOULD BE IN A FUCKING CIVIL COURT AND SHE CAN'T LEGALLY DO THAT.

also, DAMN. the Defense attourney even LOOKS like Tom Peters from Tom Goes to the Mayor.

so Megan declares that she'll NEVER download music without paying for it again and she gets no criminal record. which is good CONSIDERING THA- oh forget it, this comic is immune to logic.

and the civil case ends pretty much as you expect it, Aunt May gets to keep her house, which is good because this side story, while rather dull, is rather accurate, and its actually kind of touching.

still, they could have puppies being saved from a burning building and it wouldn't be touching enough to make up for the idiotic main plot.

oh, and guess what? instead of being bitter about being unjustly charged in a criminal court and having to spend 3 years in probation, she says "i never realized how much illegal downloading had an effect on-" YOU KNOW WHAT? FUCK IT. i don't give a crap what the hell about this comic's forced, inaccurate and stupid moral about "the EVILS of illegal downloading" is.

this comic chooses to blame illegal downloaders for the record industries issues, rather than blame the RIAA for its incompitencey and idiocy, or the fact that CDs are an outdated Media, and thats why bands are offering MP3's that cost money.

the comic ends by explaining what all the legal terms used in the comic ment (the only ACTUALLY educational part of this stupid "educational" comic,) but not at all explain why Megan was charged with a CRIMINAL offense for a CIVIL crime.

this comic sucks fucking shit, and i'm sorry i ever read it, even if it was free.

this was handed out to 50,000 students on several schools. and i'm sure 49,997 of them laughed at it and tossed in the trash.

the real crime here isn't he illegal downloading,

it isn't the city trying to close down on Spiderman's Aunt's house.

it isn't even that Tom Peters, Comminsioner Gordon, Morgan Freeman and Aunt May all make unauthorized Cameo apperances.

its the fact that i just wasted a good chunk of my life reading it.

Johnny was bad, even as a child everybody could tell
Everyone said if you dont get straight
You'll surely go to hell

But johnny didnt care
He was an outlaw by the time that he was
Ten years old
He didnt wanna do what he was told
Just a prankster, juvenile gangster

His teachers didnt understand
They kicked him out of school
At a tender early age
Just because he didnt want to learn things
(had other interests)
He liked to burn things

The lady down the block
She had a radio that johnny wanted oh so bad
So he took it the first chance he had
Then he shot her in the leg
And this is what she said

Only a lad
You really cant blame him
Only a lad
Society made him
Only a lad
Hes our responsibility
Only a lad
He really couldnt help it
Only a lad
He didnt want to do it
Only a lad
Hes underprivileged and abused
Perhaps a little bit confused

His parents gave up they couldn't influence his attitude
Nobody could help
The little man had no gratitude

And when he stole the care
Nobody dreamed that he would
Try to take it so far
He didnt mean to hit the poor man
Who had to go and die
It made the judge cry

Only a lad
He really couldn't help it
Only a lad
He didnt want to do it
Only a lad
Hes underprivileged and abused
Perhaps a little bit confused

Its not his fault that he cant behave
Society made him go astray
Perhaps if were nice hell go away
Perhaps he'll go away
He'll go away

Only a lad
He really couldnt help it
Only a lad
He didnt want to do it
Only a lad
Hes underprivileged and abused
Perhaps a little bit confused

Hey there johnny you really don't fool me
You get away with murder
And you think its funny
You dont give a damn if we live or if we die
Hey there johnny boy
I hope you fry!

oh well hello there lil' Billy!

"oh hello there Mr. Homor!"

Whacha' doin'?

"i'm making a comic book! have a look see!"

Wow Billy, this is great! why this is even better than most of the crap Marvel and DC is putting out! its funny, the characters are realistic, it has a good sense of humor and a nice plot, and the humor doesn't intrutred on the plot!

which makes me all the more sad that THIS WILL NEVER SELL TO THE AMERICAN PUBLIC.

"wh-what? why not?"

well its not DARK or EDGY enough.

comic books won't sell very well unless they're DEEP and BRUTAL. with lots of SEX. and lots of CAPITIAL LETTERS THAT GRAB THE READERS ATTENTION.

"woah Mister, i have alot to learn!"

*WARNING: THE FOLLOWING CONTAINS MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF NERD RAGE.*

okay, i know i'm a bit late to the punch for this, since the movie came out about a year ago. and the DVD has been out for a few months now. but good sweet Thor this is a shitty movie. oh, and i won't stop with the Norse Mythos references. Odin Demands them. plus Max Payne does it to.

to start off, i've never seen this movie, and i never will, and YOU shouldn't either.

"but homor," you feel required to ask "if you haven't seen it, how can you know its bad?"

short answer:
Mark Wahlberg as Max Payne.

he's not a bad actor, but LOOK AT HIM, he's a pretty faced boy band fuck. he's the actor i think of as Max Payne, Max Payne is a gritty, unshaved mean looking guy with a constipated look on his face, Mark Wahlberg is a pretty Backstreet boy character.

long answer:
i read the plot summary on Wikipedia, and this piece of crap is loaded with so many inaccuracies and faults it makes 300 look like a documentary.

the first screw up in the movie is the fact that Max Payne is searching for his Wife's murderer. THAT ISN'T WHAT FUCKING HAPPENS. if you play the game for even 6 minutes you know that random junkies kill his wife and kids, HE ISN'T LOOKING FOR THE MURDERER, HE KNOWS WHO HE IS, AND HE KILLS HIM.

his motivation SHOULD come from the fact that the killer was on Valkyr, a new drug on the streets. this is why he joins the DEA. he wants to put an end to the spread of Valkyr and stop rampaging junkies, THATS what drives him, and thats actually ambiguous and interesting.

OOH BUT NOOOO WE CAN'T HAVE AMBIGUITY AND INTELLIGENT THEMES IN MOVIES, THIS IS HOLLYWOOD, WE HAVE TO DUMB IT DOWN SO THAT IDIOT MOVIE GOERS WILL GET IT EASIER.

another problem i have is he becomes a suspect in the murder Natasha Sax. okay fuck you John Moore. Natasha Sax was a minor character killed by the Mafia, which promoted Mona Sax to help Max Payne in his war against the Mafia. she wasn't the one who introduced Max Payne to Valkyr,or the one who made Max a fugitive.

oh, and by the way: MAX ISN'T A FUGITIVE IN THIS. they COMPLETELY omit the fact that he's on the run from the law, so he's no longer a gritty outlaw with nothing to lose, he's just a normal detective who is just a suspect in some murder that holds little bearing on the plot. ARRRGGGGHHHHHH.

and then theres Jack Lupino. oh god Jack Lupino, look what they did to you. HE'S NOT AN INSANE LOKI WORSHIPING CRAZY GUY. instead he's one of the few people who gets the benefits of Valkyr without the side effects. WITHOUT SIDE EFFECTS.
WITHOUT SIDE EFFECTS.
HOW CAN THEY BE SO FUCKING STUPID AS TO MISS THE MAIN POINT OF JACK LUPINO??? HE'S SUPPOSED TO HAVE TAKEN SO MUCH VALKYR HE'S BECOME INSANE AND STARTS WORSHIP CHUTHULU AND TALKING ABOUT GODS AND MONSTERS FROM CONTRADICTING MYTHOS. HE IS NOT JUST SOME GENERIC MOB KING PIN.

and you know BB Hensley? ...no, you don't know BB Hensley. YOU DON'T KNOW SHIT ABOUT BB HENSLEY. and you know why? HE ISN'T AN ACTUALLY IMPORTANT CHARACTER.

okay fine, he's the one who framed Max for the murder of his partner and made him a fugitive, BUT THATS OMITTED FROM THIS FILM. so what do they do?

they make BB hensley, a minor character with a whopping TWO LEVELS under his belt the main antagonist of the film.

apparently HE'S the one who murdered Max's wife because she was "getting too close to the truth."

...
....
.....

*inhale*

*exhale*

so umm...you may ask, "what about Nicole Horne? isn't she the main bad guy of the game?"

well Nicole Horne is in the movie, but plays a minor role.

the main antagonist of the actual game.

plays a minor role.

...

i...

i'm...

i'm so...

i'm so PISSED.

WHAT THE FUCKING HELL JOHN MOORE?! YOU'RE TELLING ME SOME UNIMPORTANT SHMUCK WHO HAD ONLY HAD TWO LEVELS CAN GET A FULL ROLE AS THE MAIN BAD GUY, BUT THE ACTUAL BAD GUYOF THE GAME ONLY GETS LIKE, A CAMEO AT THE CREDITS?!

oh and get this:

you know the scene at the start of the third chapter of the game where Max is given Valkyr by Nicole Horne to knock him out while they escape? and how that scene is just a crappy setup for those crappy not-at-all-fun dream levels?

instead of getting the drug inserted into him, HE INSERTS IT INTO HIMSELF! why? get this: he does it to stave off the effects of hypothermia when he jumps into an icy river to avoid being shot.

...he takes an illegal drug he doesn't know the side effects of...that he doesn't even understand the normal effects of...thinking that SOMEHOW it'll hold off hypothermia...

oh and guess what, when he takes the drug he sees VALKYRIES. yeah because subtle references to Norse Mythos were just stupid, LETS THROW IN SOME REAL VALKYRIES!!!

and the best part? INSTEAD OF FIGHTING NICHOLE HORNE ON THE ROOF TOP OF THE AESIR CORP. BUILDING, HE FIGHTS BB HENSLEY. INSTEAD OF FIGHTING HIM IN A PARKING LOT LIKE HE SHOULD BE DOING.

so at the end he's surrounded by cops and after the credits he's sitting in a bar reading about Aesir Corp. stocks.

but wait...THEY NEVER HAD AN INNER CIRCLE IN THIS MOVIE, in the game some guy named Woden (he also has one eye, if you don't get it fuck you read a Thor damn book.) saves Max Payne from going to jail at the end and clears his name.

BUT HE'S NOT EVEN IN THIS FUCKING MOVIE. and if you ask me its because the power of Odin forbid one with his namesake to appear in such a shitty movie. thank you fat Norse bastard, NOW IF YOU COULD ONLY STOP THE MOVIE FROM COMING OUT INSTEAD OF SITTING ON YOUR ASS AND WORRYING ABOUT YOUR OWN IMAGE. YOU FAT NORWEGIAN DICK.

AND TELL YOUR FUCKING DEADBEAT SON LOKI TO DROP HIS STUPID "REBELLIOUS" ACT AND GET A FUCKING JOB LIKE THE REST OF THE GODS.

i just cursed out the God of War. thats how pissed this movie makes me.

so that leaves a huge plot hole, HOW THE FUCK DID MAX GET OFF THE HOOK IF THERE WAS NO INNER CIRCLE TO COVER HIS ASS?

oh, and get this is:
at the end of the movie Aesir Corp. gets a new CEO, Nichole Horne. WHAT A PLOT TWIST! I SURE AM EXCITED FOR A SQUEAL.

you know what i think? i think Nichole Horne ISN'T going to be the villain of the squeal, i think at the last minute they found out "oh shit, TIHS person is the real antagonist, shit the fans are gonna be pissed, I KNOW! lets give her a cameo appearance so we don't have to write her in to the actual plot! mindless fanserivce always solves everything!"

by the burning balls of Sutor, what a load of shit.

this movie is a fucking travesty, its an insult to everyone who ever took the time to actually play Max Payne, and to everyone who ever enjoyed it, this is just a generic crime thriller with Norse themes and Character names from Max Payne.

i've never actually seen this movie, i just read a plot summary on Wikipedia, so forgive me for any and all inaccuracies.

still, fuck this film, don't see its squeal in theaters (Loki forbid they ever make one.) don't buy the DVD for the movie, don't even illegally download it, as its giving credit to John Moore that he actually made a movie worth watching.

forget having snake venom poured into his open veins for all eternity, the REAL way the gods should have punished Loki by making him watch this movie over, and over, and over, and over, and over, UNTIL HIS FUCKING NORSE EYEBALLS FELL OUT OF THEIR SOCKETS.

fuck this movie, if you like Max Payne, buy the the damn game.

Posted by homor - May 4th, 2009


and now i will review the PS2 port of Diablo 2. err, wait no. i'm actually reviewing "Champions of Norath."

so the game starts off with 5 classes standing around a campfire-err, i mean the Wood Elf King. and you have your choice between 1 of these five classes.

Ranger.

The Cleric.

The Wizard.

The Shadow Knight.

and the Barbarian.

or as you most likely better know them as:

The Amazon, The Paldadin, The Sorceress, the Necromancer, and...The Barbarian...yeah, thats really original.

and from there the game begins as you try to defeat Diablo- err, i mean Pelys and save Tristram. err, i mean the city of the Wood Elves.

so, lets break this game down to its basic elements:

Storyline-
Spoilers ahead, this is your only warning.

the story is pretty basic, you're the Hero who has to stop the big bad evil and save the world.

there are 3 important Villains in this game:

Pelys-
leader of the orcs who is actually a Dark Elf and leader of the Dark Elves. or just a Dark Elf and NOT leader of the Dark Elves. whatever, i don't know.

Dracula- oh wait, sorry. his name is "Vanarhost"-
despite having little to no real role in the story, gets to NARRATE THE FUCKING THING.

and Innoruk-
who is this games real bad guy, and the god of Evil.

the worst part of this story is the game's ending, which is narrated by not-Dracula, which is just him sitting in a dark cave, telling the player what happened to everyone, i'd go over all my problems with this anti climatic shitty ending, but i already did:

"you beat the big bad boss, he explodes.

think you're going to have a cool epilogue? like maybe its going to pan over all the areas in the game and show all the races re-building and defeating their respective enemies with some inspirational music in the background? or maybe just a slide show of all the respective characters with a narrator announcing what happened to all of them? (al a animal house)

NO.

instead the unimportant side character not-Dracula is sitting in a dark cave with thee sound of a demon chewing on something in the background (now thats inspirational!) speaking the epilogue to no music. pretty much just saying "everything turned out fine. the end."

and what is their exciting way to set up a squeal? not-Dracula says "but how can good exist without evil?"

WOW! that sure does make me excited about Champions of Norath 2!

fuck movies and games that give you slight insight into what the next movie/game might be about! fuck intelligent foreshadowing, all you need to do at the end is say "something bad is going to happen in the squeal and the hero has to fix it!"

i also hate how they tie no loose ends with not-Dracula, like are they suggesting he's going the next game's main bad guy? yeah, i just killed the god of evil, isn't not-Dracula a bit of a step down?"

FUCK YOU GAME DESIGNERS. i know programing a game is hard work and when its all over you just want to sell it, make money, and go home. BUT HELL, that doesn't give the right to have a shitty ending, THATS THE LAST THING YOU NEED TO DO, i know you probably just want to be done with it all once the game is over, but hell, atleast leave the player with an ending that will make them like they've ACCOMPLISHED SOMETHING.

okay, thats the end of the spoile- SNAPE KILLS DUMBLEDOR PAGE 606.

overall, this story's bad ending is what holds it back.

Story- 3/5

Gameplay-

this game is straight up a Diablo rip-off.

don't give that "oh no, its not a Diablo rip-off its just-"

no no no, its a complete rip-off. from its inventory system to its classes.

now that doesn't make it a bad game, its still very fun.

theres still a nice variety of Weapons and Armor, still a nice amount of skills for classes, still some nice re-playability to check out what its like to play the other classes, but these are all strengths Diablo had.

still, theres no Diablo game on the consoles, so if you were ever interested as to what Diablo on console would be like, this game play will appeal to you.

plus, the controller factor is what really separates this game from Diablo.

where as in Diablo you would click on an enemy and be perfectly accurate, in this game you press a button to swing your weapon, and it isn't always accurate.

i'm still not sure if this feature adds to the challenge and makes for a richer experience, or if its just annoying and makes things more more awkward.

still, the game play, despite being a total rip-off of Diablo, is still solid. still, nothing stands out about it.

3.7/5

Graphics-
nothing to say about the graphics. they're just okay.

that aren't really bad, they aren't really good, they aren't unique and they aren't generic. they're just...okay. like this game.

3/5

---Final Verdict---

i wouldn't pay full price for this game if i had gotten it when it was new,

sure it has a nice novelty factor in i, its pretty fun and its got a pretty good story, but nothing stands out about it.

theres nothing about this game that stands out, maybe multi-player would be pretty good but i doubt many people still play this game after all these years.

everything about this game is just okay, the story, the graphics, the game play, they're all just okay, its all just an okay experience.

still, its probably really cheap now and you can probably find it in a bargain bin. but if you're looking in the bargain bin for a game, i would more recommend something like XIII. which reminds me, YOU SHOULD BE PLAYING XIII. DICKHEAD.

3/5-
just an okay game worth some time.

Your eyes tell the stories of a day you wish you could
Recall the moments that once have
Retract the footsteps that brought us to this favor
I wouldn't ask this of you

Good eye, sniper
Here I'll shoot, you run
The words you scribbled on the walls
With the loss of friends you didn't have
I'll call you when the time is right
Are you in or are you out?
For them all to know the end of us all

Run quick, they're behind us
Didn't think we'd ever make it
This close to safety in one piece
Now you wanna kill me in the act of what could maybe
Save us from sleep and what we are

Good eye, sniper
Now I shoot, you run
The words you scribbled on the walls
With the loss of friends you didn't have
I'll call you when the time is right
Are you in or are you out?
For them all to know the end of us all

Bye bye beautiful
Don't bother to write
Disturbed by your words and they're calling all cars
Face step, let down.
Face step, step down.

The words you scribbled on the walls
With the loss of friends you didn't have
I'll call you when the time is right
Are you in or are you out?
For them all to know

Bye bye beautiful
Don't bother to write
Disturbed by your words and they're calling all cars
Face step, let down.
Face step, step down.

Bye bye beautiful
Don't bother to write
Disturbed by your words and they're calling all cars

it's your time to go
