I was down and out, in the gutter and given no chance at all. It's not that everyone didn’t think I could do it…no one thought anything at all about me. Now that’s when you know you’re down and out: when no one even wonders. Well they’re wondering now. They’re thinking how the hell did this happen, where did they come from, what’s next etc. They’ll ask friends about me in quiet voices and lie awake at night wondering if I’m a fluke or the harbinger of some freak trend. I rose like a zombie to ruin plans and exact revenge, I intend to do just that until I go down again… but don’t wait around for that to happen. [Ryan Nimmo]
