Run the Blade

I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I’ve watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those … moments will be lost in time, like tears…in rain. Time to die. Roy Batty


I have been so inspired by Brain in a jar and his Matrix trilogy that I have had to do my own Blade Runner directors cut cut . Our styles are different enough for me not to step on his toes and I hasten to add that I urge you to check out his blog if you have not already done so!


Tears in the rain, goes beyond physical pain. The memories of millions lost and all gone thrown out with this body gone for a song.

Go chasing shadows as fast as you can, then me tell have you learnt what makes a woman or a man. Is it the body soft and coloured by blood mine is red like yours the colour of that rose bud.

Have you discovered yet, is it in the brain or is the way I answer your questions or spell my name. What gives you the right to hound us to hell the woman at your side has a secret to tell.

We never grow old or ugly unlike our designer who shares our life span, but put us next to him, which of us is more human. Beauty and elegance death by sex if you like and toys that sing, dance and even ride a bike.

So ask yourself the question anew is the Replicant that much different from you. They walk and they bleed and they have memories true and they even form friendships and they can learn to hate people too.

So run if you will throw down your blade make off with the girl who is not conceived but made.

Run for the hills and drown in her eyes  but it won’t be long until she stops and dies!
