That's the Problem. You Don't Give Up.

That’s the problem. You don’t give up. You’ve got your entire world imprinted on your brain, and nothing will change it. Keep yourself tidy, don’t play with yourself, get a decent education and a good job, tuck something away for a rainy day, play football, respect the police, find a good woman, teach your children who’s boss, buy a good house, don’t fight in public, keep away from religion and above all, don’t fuck your wife’s sister. And all the time your soul is dying like a child trapped in a refrigerator.
