Metempsychosising. . . .

So, because of the shitty angle I had, I've learned that the ceiling graffiti does not read "Shattering like a button . . ." as I had once thought.

It does say:

I AM DECAYING LIKE A ROTTEN
AR? NI THAT AS _______

The ______ looks like MATTER or MOTHER.

I have more to add but I've gotta go.

I agree with "I AM DECAYING LIKE A" but the word ROTTEN I could also it as BITTER/BITTEN. AR and THAT look right but the rest I'm clueless.

I am decaying like a rotten ______ ax?
Not that it matters

dunno.
Ive been playing with this picture and it really doesnt get any more clear. The 2nd line first letter makes you think its an "A" but that curious thing above it still makes me wonder.

ARHA ND THAT AS M?T??R

I think it may read "HAND" instead.

This reads like "Finnegan's Wake". . . .

The last few words of the first line read 'DECAYING LIKE A BITTEN' to me. I don't know if that helps, but it's another perspective anyway.

Oh also, those words scrawled over Maria's poster are the exact same words found on the wall right behind James as he gazes into the bathroom mirror. Here's a piece of the wall texture, thanks to nur:

THE HAND(S?) FASHIONED AND
THOU _____

It cuts off just like that on the Maria poster too.

I am amazed and totally proven wrong. Here I was thinking it was random bullshit.

Didn't see your edit there, Knick Knack. Job Chapter 10 Verse 8; Revised Standard Version on that one.

This is about Maria afterall...

Thy hands fashioned and made me; and now thou dost turn about and destroy me.

Beyond appropriate. Thank you for your knowledge of Biblical passages Burning Man. ;_;
Out of curiosity, when did you find all this out, anyhow? Did you go through the trouble of looking it up or do you know the verses from the Bible by heart?

After 2 years, we finally get the answer. Nice find Burning Man. From the first time I saw this thread 2 years ago, I thought the answer will never be clear.

Kudos to St.Thomas for reviving the thread. Totally forgotten about it.

Crap, Nice find Burning Man!

I've tried searching for the one underneath Maria's, The Hands that Carrion can't....

Can anyone suggest another term Carrion literally and/or figuratively?

Or have you found that too?

You know a game artist is dedicated when they spend their time making these sayings blend in to the game world and remain only half decipherable so that we spend hours attempting to decipher them. Silent Hill games always wow me with their depth and attention to detail.

Thanks, Burning Man. It's been awhile since I've read the Bible, so no wonder they didn't sound familiar. I didn't even think of punching 'em into Google, either. . . .
