How do you reason with a madman?


The Preacher:
"You're just a fish on the mountain. You're just a fish out of the sea. You're just a fish on the mountain. I can't wait to see how many of there--you will be."

Farmer Jack:
"They're killers, dangerous demons and I can't see what you need from them. I don't know why you do want me, what can I do for you? How can I be a little bit of help here, a little bit of mindfulness--a little bit everything, I'm trying to get out of this mess--if I could here--just give me a second--I'm trying to tell you, what you see as angels will ruin and destroy us--your fauxgregation of devils--but all I hear from you is--"

The Preacher:
"You're just a fish on the mountain. You're just a fish out of the sea."

Farmer Jack:
"You've never seen the worst in them, is hard for you to understand? They're not like you, nor do I want to follow you climb the roof and be part of your clan--"

The Preacher:
"Never mind this my friends, we'll take it from here to start again and teach you dirty boys and girls: behave before you leave the earth."

"I've wanted to be free of you and make clear the muddy truth."


"Give the sinners what they deserve--give them what they earned"

"Friends! Can you hear me calling you? Can you hear me from the roof?"

"We fell short of glory of God, slipped away in the night, my own flesh and blood..."

Farmer Jack:
"We can't stay here, he'll kill us all! Oh sweet one, my love: Run!"

"Take me home! Take me home! It's all I want!"

The Preacher:
"...and friends, remember, damned are the weak, for we will inherit the earth! It is they who are in danger of eternal punishment! They will never make it on their own! For we will hunt them down and feed off their bones!"
