the strain quotes

I was not drawn to a killer nor was I drawn to a saint.

I was not drawn to the kind person that you long to be.

I was drawn to the warrior that you so obviously are.

Regardless of what either of us long to be… we were both born warriors.

Well then get your shit together. Get it all together and put it in a backpack, all your shit, so it’s together. …and if you gotta take it somewhere, take it somewhere ya know? Take it to the shit store and sell it, or put it in a shit museum. I don’t care what you do, you just gotta get it together… Get your shit together.
