    Author's comment:
    Mysterious and horrible events are happening in Death City: teachers of the familiar Academy of the Masters and Weapons are dying from unknown maniac's hands one by one. Police ran legs off, trying to find the elusive killer, but couldn't find out anything. He's smart, impertinent, well-informed and he doesn't leave any evidence. But now even he should be more careful, because the case passed into the hands of the best detectives.

    Song lyrics:

    To the centre of the city where all roads meet, waiting for you
    To the depths of the ocean where all hopes sank, searching for you
    Moving through the silence without motion, waiting for you
    In a room with a window in the corner I found truth

    In the shadowplay acting out your own death, knowing no more
    As the assassins all grouped in four lines, dancing on the floor
    And with cold steel, odour on their bodies made a move to connect
    I could only stare in disbelief as the crowds all left

    I did everything, everything I wanted to
    I let them use you for their own ends
    To the centre of the city in the night, waiting for you
    To the centre of the city in the night, waiting for you

    [Joy Division cover]
