I try in vain

To disconnect my brain

I don't know if I can handle it...

I want you so bad.

Handle so much pain

I don't know what's left to gain

All the guilt and now the blame

I don't want to stop this game

I'm starting to enjoy the pain

I don't care what you claim

I still hear your voice replaying

The only thing that remains

Is to disconnect



My pain

(Excited chatter)

Animal (Mark Ronson Remix)

- Hey.

- Hi.

- What is this place?

- I'm not too sure yet.

- So, it's not your room?

- No, it is. It's my room.

I just haven't decided.

Chelsea Teens, exclamation mark.

Is this a joke?

Well, how do you mean?

- Is it yours?

- Yeah.

- So what does it mean?

- I don't know yet.

A room for Chelsea teens prone

to exclamation?

Well, maybe.

And that's you?

Yeah, probably.

Is it you?

It probably is.

Me too!

I'm Emily.

- William.

- I'm Jim.

So what's the purpose of Chelsea Teens?

It's a very big question. William?

Er...I think it would be nice to talk

and make newfriends.

We can define what the room is later.

So how do we begin to talk?

Choose someone you hate,

share it, and we talk shit from there.

- Well, I'm Mo.

- Who do you hate, Mo?

People who hate television.

People who think those who watch it

are idiots.

I hate those people.

- Because television is so important.

- Yeah.

- Do you watch a lot of television?

- Tons.

It's important to have a hobby.

It's not a hobby.

- Important to keep busy?

- It's important we study life, William.


- Who do you hate, William?

- Oh, God...

I don't really hate anything.

There must be

something that irritates you.


Grace Rollins.

- I love her Ripley books!

- Irritates the shit out of me!

- She's a wonderful writer.

- She's a fake.

She's got children into history.

That's a positive thing.

Ripley Goes To Pompeii. When I read it,

I didn't feel any need to read any other

books about Pompeii or volcanoes.

That's how good it was!

Wow. That's one of the saddest things

I've ever heard, Mo.


Have you got a few minutes?

I'd really like to show you something.


Boys and girls, it's the Black Plague...

Grace Rollins stylee.


Ninth Symphony (2nd Movement)

So, here we have Ripley,

our spoilt, smug hero.

Glorious, isn't it?

Ah-ha. It's lute-playing Archibold!

Those wretched rats.

Agh! Argh!

Somehow, he magically saves the day.

Typical Grace Rollins.

Don't you just hate her?

Great work.

I'm in a media club at Chelsea Tech

and I've never seen work like that.

It's amazing.

Besides taking the

piss out of Grace Rollins,

do you have a wider point?

How the lies we're told begin early

in childhood.

- The suppression of teenagers.

- It's a good point.

It's got to come back to our parents,


Do you think our parents

are scared of us?

Yeah. And they have every right to be.

We're better educated than they were.

We're more connected to the world.

They don't see it that way.

They see the opposite.

They think of us as an experiment.

It's not clear what my parents

are trying to produce in me,

but, regardless of that,

they're messing me up.

- But not on purpose.

- Oh, no.

It's often a conscious decision

to mess you up, Jim.

I'm cleverer,

more adaptable than my parents.

But you're still a child to them!

- Oh, definitely.

- Well...

take the power, Emily.

- The power?

- Yeah, you know how the world works,

what makes people tick.

- Yeah.

- Let's have a bit more ambition.

Seize the moment.
