I don't wanna be weak

It's not have the strength to stand up

and move my feet across the ground

I don't wanna be sickly or ill

I'm afraid of that the most

the life seeping out of me

like steam from a train engine

the wheels struggle on.. so slow

until finally.. just stops

spinning all together

it's hard to think of

something lasting forever

going on and on with no end.

But love.. I know love is infinite

I'll love you even after I'm dead

like I know my mother still loves me.

Get up, Alice!.

You have school this morning.

I don't wanna go to school today.

We've only just moved here.

If you want to make any new friends,

you have to go to school.

You must to go to school every day.

You know that.

You have to go this day,

and the next, and the next.

There is no getting around that.


My father says you're

the whores of Babylon!


I will not ask again.

Queen of the Thorns

Who did this?

Who.. did this?

If we go to heaven when we die,

can we ever come back to earth

to see what it's like in the future?

- No.

well, I dunno if I want

to be stuck up in heaven

and never see the

ocean or forest again.

You don't need to see the ocean

or the forest if you're in heaven.

Why not?, I don't know,

I just know you don't need to.

Well, what about angels?,

angels come back from heaven.

Yes, there are angels here on earth,

but you are not one of them.

You're very far from it.

You know, you might be able to very ask

that question if you actually

pay attention in school.

I'm as good as a student as any other,

I just tend to daydream, that's all.

Someday all your daydreaming

will get you into trouble.

You know, father spends very good

money to keep you in that private school.

The least you can do is learn

a thing or two while your there.

It's summer now.

I would like very much

to forget about school

and remember what it's like

to sit beneath the sun all day.

Very well, do as you wish,

you always do anyway.

Do you think we've

been here long enough?

Long enough for what?

Well.. we moved here

a few months ago and..

I feel like I haven't met anyone yet.

Aside for my classmates.

You know..the only people I can socialize

with are the folks from church.

The protestants simply don't like us,

at all there's a lot more

of them than there are of us.

Is that why that boy yelled at me

in my way to school yesterday?

Father McAvoy was talking

about radical ideas and..

new ways of doing old traditions.

And how we shouldn't let the

backwards become forwards,

or the insane become sane

or the lie become word of truth.

But, I wanna meet

strange and new people.

I wanna hear new ideas and

meet the strange and eccentric.

I wanna meet the kind of people

who would change the world

the kind of people of picture shows.

I knew we shouldn't have

taken you to see that movie.

But, then I think maybe we haven't

been here long enough.

Well, let's see, we've been

here for... three months.

So, yes, I think is right about

time to meet one of those..

new and exciting people.

Are you patronizing me?


Patronizing, I learned it in school,

It means to...

I know what it means.

Well.. are you are patronizing me?

No, of course not.

Or maybe a little.

Very well then.

When do you want some tee

I'm bored and tired of being patronized.

In a moment.. however you can brew yourself if you wish

The sausages are in the basket.

Where is my teacup?

How should I know, Alice?

Well, It's not here and It

must've been left somewhere.

Well, maybe is at home.

I'll go back and get it.
