There was a man from Troubadour
who got blown up during the war.
He did not die, would not concede.

Remy: So what is it I'm writing? It's not just some crappy memoir or even an attempt at apologizing for everything I've done. This is a cautionary tale. I hope that you might learn from my mistakes. 'Cause in the end, a job is not just a job. It's who you are. And if you want to change who you are, well, first, you have to change what you do.
