by Y!KES

We’ve always enjoyed things of a dystopian nature. So to stumble through Birmingham with nobody there was equally as terrifying as it was satisfying. It’s really tough to spot the difference between the good guy & the bad guy anymore, so I guess at the very least it’s important to know yourself.
