About half a mile or so.

And I don't mind.“

„Wanna be young, the rest of my life.
Never say no, try anything twice.
Til the angels come and ask me to fly.
Gonna be 18 til I die - 18 til I die.
Can't live forever, that's wishful thinkin'.
Whoever said that must have been drinkin'.
Don't wanna grow up, I don't see why.
I couldn't care less if time flies by.18 til I die - gonna be 18 til I die.
Yeah it sure feels good to be alive.
Someday I'll be 18 goin' on 55!“

Don't wanna go to Bognor — it's a plague-ridden hole

Albania — that's the place for me!“

There is a dark place.
A place where I have no eyes, no mouth. No words.
I can't cry out because I have no breath. The silence is so deep I want to die.
But I can't.
The darkness and silence go on forever.
It is not a dream.
I don't dream.“
