Can't Live

Post by ChicagoMike » Tue Mar 23, 2010 8:29 am

As I write these words, I know that I will soon die. Yet my end cannot come fast enough to escape the memory of the horrors I have experienced. My only comfort is the hope that others may read this and avoid my terrible fate.

It was a primitive transmission emanating from the third planet of system EE4310.X73 that destroyed our shipboard A.I. and drove my crewmates to murderous insanity. When I close my eyes, I still hear that terrible voice, a soul-shattering wail, repeating:

With or without you
With or without you
I can’t live
With or without you.

I can't liiiiiiive if living is without you!
I can't live, I can't live anymoooooore!

I'm going to avoid looking up the lyrics to the one in your drabble because I'm afraid it would destroy me like that poor shipboard AI. However, Harry Nilsson? Good stuff.

As is your drabble. A reminder to all of us: shitty pop music destroys lives, people.

Wha'choo, talking about, dreamrock? U2 are bitchin, and the destruction of an alien species is a small price to pay for them to exist.
