god has left the building.
"That’s why I pray now, Sheriff. Because… out there, there’s no need to pray where God’s hand is felt, you know? Where God is… apparent? But in here, there’s definitely a need to pray, to beg, to plead, to sing for… for a sign… You know how your voice sounds so pretty in the shower? It’s because there’s nothing else there. Because it echoes off the walls and it sounds pretty. My prayers sound so perfect in here, because it’s so totally empty. Because it’s so… it’s so godless. It’s so void of anything."
