The text says, "I seem to remember. .. playing on the edge. Recall, Memory, is Such an illusion. I look back and you are hazy, cloudy and thin. Is that my recollection or just you... I seem to remember playing on the edge. Something smells of Caramel and Violets. I seem to remember there was a calm before the violence."
