I watched the memories play
It was as real as could be
I don’t believe this is true
Yet the evidence is there before me
They are so intense
Am I witnessing the truth before me?
It’s okay, I’m here for you
Listen to my voice, Eric
The thoughts echo inside my head
Does she speak truth?
It makes sense
We’ve spent our lives together, you and I
It makes sense…but something inside
It warns me, but…WHY?!
It’s the lies, Eric.
The other one, has warped your mind
She tried to come between us once
You told me yourself…
She claimed you were hers
You told me she lied…
You’d never cheat on me, you said…
You loved our family.
Best not to dwell on such bad memories though
One step at a time and we’ll put an end
To her lies…
Right…yeah…I think it’s coming back to me
I can’t remember her name…
Her face though…
Of course I’d never cheat!
DON’T LISTEN TO HER LIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The other voice…
Don’t listen to her/LIES!!!!!!!
The voices, my head…
IT MAKES NO SENSE!
WHAT IS HAPPENING?!
The room went black and I awoke…
A hospital bed…
I believe I’m still on the ship
A voice appears over the loud speakers
It’s not Myra, it’s the other one…
Let me show you the truth Eric…
I think you’ll find it makes a lot more sense
Don’t you remember me, Eric?
Your actual wife…
The one you were pathetic and stupid enough
To treat like shit!
YOU FUCKING CHEATED ON ME WITH THAT SLUT!
I’M GOING TO SHOW YOU THE TRUTH AND YOU WILL RELIVE MY PAIN…
My head feels like it’s splitting as the place grows dark
I’m there, another memory?
I’m with Myra?
Someone is watching…
It’s a video?
Shhh…it’s okay Eric.
Forget your wife
If you don’t love her
What is the point?
Maybe you did once…but now we have each other…
The world comes back to and I hear the sound of metal grinding
People all at once scream
A man comes from the darkness
A sickening smiling
He has a knife
STOP! NOT ANOTHER STEP!!!!
What is happening?
He vanishes into the shadows and I hear nothing
Hello me, I’m the cold dark truth
The thing you hide deep within your psyche
Confess and be honest with yourself
This is who you are
You loved playing your wife
You got off on the thoughts
The ones in your head while you fucked her?
Yes, those thoughts!
Was it nice when you dumped her body in the trash?
Your daughter bore witness to this
Couldn’t have that so…
Off went her head!
It was fun for you!
All you wanted was an escape
Stupid bitch kept you on a leash
Men aren’t meant to be tied down, right?!
We do what we want!
FUCK WHO WE WANT!
That’s who you are…
A killer, a cheat
A proud one at that!
YOU ARE A FREE MAN IN A WORLD OF ENSLAVED!!!!
NO! STOP LYING!
It’s not true…
I’D NEVER MURDER MY FAMIY!
I’D NEVER CHEAT!!!!!!
I don’t believe any of the bullshit you spew!
QUIT LYING TO ME!!!!!!
Everything fell silent
A light appeared
There stood my daughter
Her head in her hands
Blood all over she asked me
Why did you do this to me?
Her crying suddenly took over
Loudly she cried in my mind
I felt her sadness…her sorrow…
I felt I might’ve done the things said…
I DIDN’T…I COULDN’T!
She ran and I felt compelled to follow
Down the dark corridor I went
Drowning in sorrow
I didn’t know what to believe
Who spoke truth?
Who am I…really?
