The Real Folk Blues Part 2

1 It was raining that day as well.
And so you didn't come because of the rain? I was supposed to kill you.
It was all set up.
If I had, I would have been free.
So why didn't you? You chose to be hunted.
Why? Why did you love me? Let's just go away somewhere.
Escape.
Vanish, and go somewhere where there's no one else.
Just the two of us.
Was the target terminated? He got away.
Our agents were cut down.
They ran out of firepower and were unable to take out-- Why did you come back? Where's Julia? I couldn't find her.
Shin, do not follow in your brother's footsteps.
Keep going, just drive past it.
What? Somebody might have gotten there already.
Wait here.
Annie.
I told them you weren't here.
I said you were already dead.
Told them they were wasting their time.
Don't talk.
Vicious assassinated all of the elders.
That's what they said.
Everyone they've all lost their sense of place in the world.
Like kites without strings or tails.
Oh, so you found Julia.
That's good.
I'm happy for you.
Annie! It got a little chilly today.
It's those cold winds You won't need all those weapons if we run away together.
You know that.
You're staying.
Then I'll stay too.
I'll be with you until the end.
I'm sorry, I'm gonna make a bit of a scene.
You're a very lucky woman.
Yeah, right.
My timing was perfect for getting shot at and nearly killed.
I'm really on a roll.
The Redtail won't be functional for a while.
You're having some pretty good luck yourself.
That Spike, he was nothing but trouble.
He's probably not coming back.
They may have killed him already, you know? It's possible.
So what? Want me to go looking for him? Forget it.
He's dealing with his own past.
It's his fight.
You told him to go after her.
My leg is wrecked, my ship is busted, hell yes, he was nothing but trouble! And I don't give a damn! So what kind of woman is she? What's Julia like? Ordinary.
The kind of dangerous, beautiful ordinary that you just can't leave alone.
I see.
Like an angel from the underworld.
Or maybe a devil from paradise.
This way.
Get down! Julia! Julia Where's Spike? Can you help me track him down? All living things, every being that walks and breathes, - each has its own star.
- Huh? When a life is born, a new star appears.
That is the guardian star.
The star that warms this planet is someone's guardian star as well.
The red star you see overhead.
The blue star on the horizon.
And when a life ends, the star falls and disappears.
Don't say that.
You, Running Rock.
That's not my name.
Don't call me that.
His star is about to fall.
I have dreamed it.
This is ridiculous.
What am I doing here? Do not fear death.
Death is always at our side.
When we show fear, it jumps at us faster than light.
But if we do not show fear, it casts its eye upon us gently, and then guides us into infinity.
Vicious, here it is.
Her passport was still inside the pocket.
It'll be impossible for them to escape the planet now.
A beast that has lost his place.
He has nowhere to return to now.
He will come.
Spike, you're-- you're back! Do you have anything to eat? - Huh? - I'm really starving.
This food tastes terrible, as usual.
For being so bad, you sure eat a lot of it.
They say hunger is the best spice.
Ever heard this story? There once was a tiger-striped cat.
This cat died a million deaths, revived, and lived a million lives.
And he was owned by various people who he didn't really care for.
The cat wasn't afraid to die.
Then one day, the cat became a stray cat, which meant he was free.
He met a white female cat.
And the two of them spent their days together happily.
Well, years passed, and the white cat grew weak and died of old age.
The tiger-striped cat cried a million times, and then he died too.
Except this time, he didn't come back to life.
Yeah, it's a good story.
I hate that story.
I never liked cats.
You know that.
Oh yeah, that's right.
- Hey, Spike.
- Yeah? I just wanna ask you one thing.
- What's that? - Is it for the girl? She's dead.
There's nothing I can do for her now.
Where are you going? Why are you going? You told me once to forget the past, 'cause it doesn't matter.
But you're the one still tied to the past, Spike! Look at my eyes, Faye.
One of them is a fake 'cause I lost it in an accident.
Since then, I've been seeing the past in one eye, and the present in the other.
So I thought I could only see patches of reality, never the whole picture.
Don't tell me things like that.
You've never told me anything about yourself.
So don't tell me now.
I felt like I was watching a dream I'd never wake up from.
Before I knew it, the dream was all over.
My memory finally came back.
But nothing good came of it.
There was no place for me to return to.
This was the only place I could go.
And now you're leaving, just like that! Why do you have to go? Where are you going? What are you going to do? Just throw your life away like it was nothing?! I'm not going there to die.
I'm going to find out if I'm really alive.
I have to do it, Faye.
Subete wa mou owatta to Mimi o fusaida mama de kimi ga iu Kotoba wa tada nagareteku Yasuragu koto no nai ashita e Kawaranu mono nado ari wa shinai sa to Tatoe inochi tsukite mo Kono ai o kese wa shinai Sore wa towa o ikiru koto Yume wa yami ni kakurete mo I got a rainbow Rainbow in your hands Shin.
- Where's Vicious? - On the top floor.
This way.
Shin! Shin Vicious he's got to be stopped.
I was waiting for you to come back and take over.
So you're finally awake.
I told you before, Spike.
I'm the only one who can kill you and set you free.
Those words apply to you as well, Vicious.
Either way, it's going to end here.
Julia is dead.
Let's finish it now.
As you wish.
It's all a dream.
Yeah Just a dream.
Bang.
Never seen a bluer sky Yeah, I can feel it reaching out and moving closer There's something about blue Asked myself what it's all for You know, the funny thing about it, I couldn't answer No, I couldn't answer Things have turned a deeper shade of blue And images that might be real may be illusion Keep flashing off and on Free Wanna be free Gonna be free Move among the stars You know, they really aren't so far Feel so free Gotta know free Please Don't wake me from the dream It's really everything it seemed I'm so free No black and white In the blue Everything is clear now Life is just a dream, you know, that's neverending I'm ascending
