“I have unchained all the prisoners from my basement and freed the ghosts from my attic.

I was the guy who ended up holding the keys to their freedom.

It was me who let them out.

It’s a job that no one else could do and one that comes with great consequence because these ghosts and prisoners are standing around me now all day, all night long.

I told my truth the way I heard it and the way I remembered it and that’s all I have. Everything else is bullshit.” Tom Wilson
