All those paper people living in their paper houses, burning the future to stay warm. All the paper kids drinking beer some bum bought for them at the convenience store. Everyone demented with mania of owning things. All the things paper-thin and paper-frail. And all the people, too. I`ve lived here for eighteen years and I have never once in my life come across anyone who cares about anything that matters.
