Would you believe me if I said
that the world was against us?
That every day the neon signs tell me
to give up on first love,
to forget blissful happiness,
to accept imminent failure,
to concede to the forces that are
Would you believe my if I said
that I’m going to beat them?
That I’m going to put up my own banner
saying that I’m forever yours,
that I’m going to be okay,
that I’m going to be successful,
and that I am going to show the world
Would you laugh and say I’m just a teenager
searching for immortality?
That like Gilgamesh, I will soon find myself
alone by the sea,
looking at the kingdom I never gave myself the chance
Will you take the easy way
and say our fate is set in stone?
Or will you join me?
