"At this moment, there are 6 billion, 4 hundred, 71 million, 8 hundred, 18 thousand, 6 hundred, 71 people in the world. Some are running scared.. some are coming home. Some tell lies to make it through the day.. others are just now facing the truth. Some are evil men at war with good, and some are good.. struggling with evil. 6 billion people in the world, 6 billion souls -- and sometimes.. all you need is 1."

Tears well up in his eyes,
you can see the fear behind the pain.

He's shaking like a scared puppy.
Getting ready to do it.

He can taste the metal in his mouth.
The steel taste sends shivers down his back.

He has his finger on the ice cold trigger.
All the problems he has rushes to his mind.

He remembers his dad's disappointment look.
His mother's tears in her eyes.

He remembers his failing grades.
And his very low social status.

All he wants to do is forget.
He only sees one way how.
