Your mouth is a revolver, firing bullets in the sky.
Your love is like a soldier, loyal ‘til you die.
And I’ve been looking at the stars for a long, long time.
I’ve been putting out fires all my life.
Everybody wants a flame.
They don’t want to get burnt.
— James Blunt, Bonfire Heart.
My name is KHAN. A remnant of a time long past. Genetically engineered to be superior so as to lead others to peace in a world at war. But I was condemned as criminals, forced into exile. For centuries I slept, hoping when I awoke things would be different. My ship was found adrift. I alone was revived.
