Nobody: "Rise now, and drive your cart and plow over the bones of dead." (quoting from William Blake's Proverbs of Hell)
(On the train, Blake explains why he is traveling) Blake: "Well, I received a letter from the people at Dickinson's Metal Works assuring me of a job." Fireman: "Is that so?" Blake: "Yes. I'm an accountant." Fireman: "I wouldn't know because I don't read, but I'll tell you one thing for sure: I wouldn't trust no words written down on no piece of paper especially from no Dickinson out in the town of Machine. You're just as likely to find your own grave." [sound of gunshots] (Audio Clip WAV 278 KB)
Nobody: "I will take you to the bridge made of waters-- the mirror. Then you will be taken up to the next level of the world, the place where William Blake is from, where his spirit belongs. I must make sure that you pass back through the mirror at the place where the sea meets the sky."
Nobody: "I have just ingested food of the Great Spirit, my brother Peyote."
Nobody: "That tobacco is for your voyage" Blake: "Don't worry, I don't smoke"
Blake: "I feel very weak. I'm hungry." Nobody: "The quest for vision is a great blessing, William Blake. To do so, one must go without food and water. All the Sacred Spirits recognize those who fast. It's good to prepare for a journey in this way."
