Intensity is all I came for
I have never left
A man behind:
And don't intend to do so now
So if you'll be so kind
I'd better leave
Before it gets too dark to see.
Don't be so melancholy:
About the victories we've won
And how they were all in vain
Don't be so petrified of death
Think of how we worried
Think of how we wasted every living breath
Trying to understand
The meaning of our life
And yet I never really saw
How we ever broke a law
Now I think I realise
Why we never touched the skies
This has all been far too trivial
I must leave a man behind
For the first time.
