Is this what you really wanted? Is this what you really needed? Did you think this is what it should be? How it should look like? You always wanted more and more, bigger and better, higher and faster. You burnt everything down, drained the cup to the dregs. That was your impulse, your ambition, your only interest. And what is your destination now? Where did it guide you to? Where do you find yourself now? Step forward, come on, get closer! Have a look, have a close look! Look at you! What do you see? What have you become? You ended up in smoke. Burnt. Vanished. Dead. [Melani Murkovic]
