My mind's being eaten away... Kaji, it's unraveling my mind... What will I do? It's defiling my mind...
An open mind is like a fortress with its gate unbarred and unguarded.
Oh, you want to cry, young creature? I will show you something that will make you cry forever!

The touch of the King
comes from all directions simultaneously. He is outside and inside and somewhere else. Suddenly she can't remember the name of her husband or the sound of the voices of her daughters. All she can remember is the time when she was twelve and she let the man in the swingpark touch her. He gave her ten shillings and she bought chocolate and was sick. Shame. Disgust. Humiliation. The king is talking to her, touching her that way.
You scream all the time, but it's the inside kind. You scream and scream, but you can only hear it when you're asleep. Otherwise, it's quite lovely
Because unless you're a Poe, that thing is deadly. It's a battery... a storage battery. It contains one million emotions
. A hundred thousand kinds of fear, a quarter-million kinds of anger... jealousy, love... One touch, and it's -
The emotional electric chair.
Son of a bitch, he mind raped me!

Come to me...
Bring your sword, bring your wife,
bring adoration, bring me your life.
You are mine, fall in line,
only in death will you wake.
Cattle and Swine, I will dine
on your mind, honey and cake.
never to cease, never to end,
never to question, always to bend.
Come to me...
G-get... out of me!!

: So, the mask creeper was bad-touching your brain-meats, huh? Makoto
: Yeah, that's right. He was pulling out memory after memory. Especially all the bad ones
I'd hidden away. Kokonoe
: Yep. I bet he got all your most embarrassing moments. Y'know, the ones that make you wanna cry into a pillow and kick your legs?
Knowledge is such a burden. Release it. Release all your nightmares to me.

"You don't know, Robert, you don't know. They took everything I was. They used me to kill and to destroy, and I couldn't stop them! I should have been able to stop them! I tried. I tried so hard. But I wasn't strong enough! I wasn't good enough! I should have been able to stop them."
