“And there was. Sounds weird, but there was aliens all over the fucking place outside. And supposedly, you know, something really strange happened. That would’ve been in the seventies, that would’ve been in the sixties. But then I never knew what happened and nobody ever talked about it. So I just attributed it to a dream. Sometimes when you have dreams and you wake up and, you know, they’re almost real. They feel like real. Because I’ve seen things before that. I believe in the – I believe we have a lot of power with our minds and everything else that people don’t have anymore. We’ve abused it so the knowledge and everything was taken away from us. It’s weird.”
