"Of course you are...I understand perfectly [that you're in love with me], because I'm in love with myself.The fact that I'm not transfixed in front of the nearest mirror takes a great deal of self-control." -Lestat de Lioncourt

The world has a song,
It's a song of darkness and despair,
A song that sings of the Apocalypse,
A song that no one cares.

The world has a song,
It's a song of violence and greed,
A song of essential human selfishness,
A song all Hell's been freed.

The world has a song,
It's a song of heartlessness and gluttony,
I wish someone would change the song,
Because the song is scaring me.
