Even if I knew my place, even if it leads nowhere

“…Should I give up or should I just keep chasing pavements?
Even if it leads nowhere,
or would it be a waste?
Even if I knew my place, should I leave it there?
Should I give up or should I just keep chasing pavements?
Even if it leads nowhere…”

The single most wasteful human activity

“Obsession is the single most wasteful human activity, because with an obsession you keep coming back and back and back to the same question and never get an answer.”

I would have waited

“You didn’t come here to see how I am. You came to see how you are, because you know what you did. You wana make sure you’re okay. […] Don’t use rational thought as a defence with me. Not after all you and I have seen. Vaughn, you and I live and breathe madness. Every day on the job there is no rational thought, I can’t even pretend to have a conversation about anything else with you. What it comes down to is faith. What I was hoping you would say is, ‘Sydney, I gave up on us. I lost faith.’ But what you came here for was closure and there is not a chance that you are getting that from me. I’m not gonna say, ‘I understand,’ I’m not gonna sympathise with you and tell you how hard it must be for you. But you want to know how I am? I am horrible! Vaughn, I am ripped apart! And not because I lost you… but because… if it had been me… I would have waited… I would have found the truth… I wouldn’t have given up on you! And now I realize… what an absolute waste that would have been!”
