Can't breathe anymore
The ocean has opened

Caress the needle prick in my eye
The tears fell like rain
I've rode the phoenix as she glides
And I've gone insane I've seen the light of suicide
And I'm dying Hold on"

Even other Damned fear the Malkavians. The cursed blood of their clan has polluted their minds, with the result that every last Malkavian across the world is incurably insane. What's worse, a Malkavian's madness can take nearly any form, from overpowering homicidal tendencies to near-catatonia. In many cases, there's no way to tell a Malkavian apart from the "sane" members of other clans. Those few whose psychoses are immediately obvious are among the most terrifying vampires to stalk the streets.
