We live and we die
 
But in our time let us try
 
Just let me reach the sky
 
All I want is fame
 
And I am no longer tame
 
I will suffer all the pain
 
To reach the top of this game 
 
We call life
 
And if I fail, I will reach for the knife 
 
The nights are long and dark
 
My heart pale and stark
 
If my name is known, then I have won
 
If I am forgotten, I will be done
 
Come visit my tombstone
 
Where I lie, a pile of bones
