“It’s fire. It’s lightning. It’s every heartbeat, and every spark in the world. It’s energy. Everything pulsating and reaching out to me with that energy. I feel more alive when I’m in that state than I do… just standing here. Nothing tops it. But god it’s… painful. I’m burning alive and reforming and… I can’t explain it any other way. I’m everything with it, nothing without it, and I’m in agony either way.
That… that is the price of power.”
