pound your fists like an animal
watch and see, lowly worm
who will survive, you or I
when the world falls down
I long for a time when the wager is set
when blood and sand are equal in worth
when life and dollar rest even
when this whole game gets real
and when we all stop kidding ourselves
I await that day, my friend
when I too become legend
