“It’s difficult to find a hero, When they’re all off their heads …”
Crumie, a runaway from Cork, looking for adventure.
Gosger, a lost soul, who drifts from party to party.
Charlie, a student doctor, who gets queasy at the sight of blood.
Biscuit, still numb from the death of his mother, he searches for hope.
“My blood races, All through my body, Spreading happiness to places, in my mind, BODY, and soul, that’s where I want to go… I can feel it in me, pumping faster And Faster, Base loving, TECHNO. Oh here it comes, We’re ready to go. He takes away the beats…and we flow…Bliss! Magical maladies. Make us reach to the sky. I FEEL SO GOOD. I feel so good! Makes me smile, All loved up. Head rushing. Body mushed. Everything is great. Living the moment, Hugs to a stranger. Kisses to a babe. Beat teasing D.J. Bring back the beats…”
