A monologue from the tv series by Jonathan Nolan & Lisa Joy
You can hear it, can’t you? That little voice. The one that’s telling you don’t. Don’t stare too long. Don’t touch.
Don’t do anything you might regret. I used to be the same.
Whenever I wanted something I could here that voice telling me to stop, to be careful, to live most of my life unlived.
You know the only place that voice left me alone? In my dreams.
I was free. I could be as good or as bad as I felt like being. And if I wanted something I could just reach out and take it.
But then I would wake up and the voice would start all over again.
So I ran away, crossed the shining sea and when I finally set foot back on sole ground the first thing I heard was that goddamn voice.
You know what it said? It said: This is the New World and in this world you can be whoever the f*** you want.
