"The poor and the underclass are growing. Racial justice and human rights are non-existent. They have created a repressive society and we are their unwitting accomplices." - They Live (1988)

The skull-shaped Snapdragon Flower Dragon(Antirrhinum majus) seed pod. The Antirrhinum, commonly known as the snapdragon has been a popular garden plant for many years. Also known as the dragon flower, its common name derives from the resemblance of the flower to a dragon’s head.Yet once the flower has died, leaving behind the seed pod, something a little more macabre appears. The dragon – just a visual metaphor after all – appears to have a skull.
Brother Mandus’s story.
In Russian only, sorry.
1.1 Hello, Mandus. Do you remember, when your brother was more precious to you than your own life?
1.2 Nights, when you forced yourself to stay awake, afraid of appearing in a place without beginning or end. The shadows watched you. And a voice whispered your name.
2.1 You tried to save yourself from this obsession, hiding behind the gray walls of the Abbey. And all the dreams went away. But the quiet voice remained, telling you stories that made your blood run cold.
2.2 The bones sung to you, begging you to take them. And you burnt them. You’ve burnt almost everything, Mandus. Not eradicating heresy, but dreaming of longed-for silence.
3.1 It came. That night your dear brother died. The runes had been singing to him too. And your gray brothers came for him. But he escaped. You didn’t know about that, Mandus, did you?
3.2 You were left alone. With silent grief. Understanding, that you want the voice to come back.
4.1 You are a man of striking talent, Mandus. Talent for creation. Metamorphosis. It’s a pity the walls of the Academy had not become your home. You made the instrument play a different melody. Put another god into the machine, one you could control.
4.2 But knowledge was not enough for you. That night you slept soundly for the first time. Knowing, what awaits you.
You waited for a meeting. So did I. Quiet, cool like the waters of the Wrenhaven, Mandus, came for what is his. (don’t know if it’s supposed to mean the Outsider came for Mandus, who is his, or Mandus came for powers that are his; sorry)
5.1 You raped the faith and traditions, the prohibition and the fear. You turned the body of the Abbey inside out, defiled the holy Litany. Did you know what would come next? Or did you not care? The music filled the city. It spilled beyond its borders.
5.2 And night came to the Void.
