Music Monday: G.O.A.T by Theory of a Deadman

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday.

Thoughts and other ramblings

I’m kind of in a weird place right now. On one hand I woke up with a rising feeling of anxiety over my weekend. In a nutshell: I’ll be going to London on wednesday, then head to Bristol on friday to attend BristolCon on saturday to come home on sunday. It’ll be a nice trip and I pretty much look forward to it. Several people will attend I want to meet and that makes me feel excited. But at the same time for personal reasons I’m dreading it as well. Things could go either way making my weekend the best I ever had or a nightmare. And I’m not talking about the Con. That’ll be fun. And I will absolutely make sure to go out and explore Bristol and check out some of the awesome street arts it can offer. Especially some Banksy. I’m not coming home until I see at least one graffiti from him.

On the other hand I’m in a happy bubble right now. We have a day off over here and a national holiday tomorrow, which means my weekend is still on. I finally got some decent amount of sleep and don’t feel tired as hell. Yay!

I choose G.O.A.T by Theory of a Deadman because I wanted something to reflect my mood (well, okay, I always choose songs like that, duh.) It’s an upbeat song, kind of a preptalk to myself that I can do this, I can get through this weekend and it’ll be awesome.

Lyrics

Never settle for less than gold
You’re the best that the world will know
No one’d ever guess how far you’d go
You’re the greatest, the greatest that ever was

You’re a star, you really are
You’re the one shining bright from all the rest in the dark
A champion with nerves of stone
You trained for this since the day you were born
Full of pain, full of sweat, full of tears
But never giving up or giving into the fear
A quick breath for the ones you love
Props to the gods as they watch from above
Your enemies line up for miles
You crush them all with your hope and a smile
When you win, put your fists in the air
Your fans cheer you on while your victims stare

So go all the way
And they will scream your name

You never settle for less than gold
You’re the best that the world will know
No one’d ever guess how far you’d go
You’re the greatest, the greatest that ever was
You never quit till the finish line
You always win with your head held high
Your legend will never die
You’re the greatest, the greatest that ever was
Ever was, ever was
Ever was, ever was
Ever was, ever was
You’re the greatest, the greatest that ever was

Throwing no punches, throwing no shade
The best of the best don’t need no fame
Full of love, full of heart, full of soul
Never get weary, never grow old
Now is the time when your heroes call
The faces appear on your bedroom walls
Staring back as you’re in the zone
Reminding you that you’re not alone

Give it up, give it up they’ll say
But not today, no, not today

You never settle for less than gold
You’re the best that the world will know
No one’d ever guess how far you’d go
You’re the greatest, the greatest that ever was
You never quit till the finish line
You always win with your head held high
Your legend will never die
You’re the greatest, the greatest that ever was
Ever was, ever was
Ever was, ever was
Ever was, ever was
You’re the greatest, the greatest that ever was

Find your strength, feel alive
Find your power deep inside
Speak the truth, never lie
Live forever, never die
Be the greatest, the greatest of all time

You never settle for less than gold
You’re the best that the world will know
No one’d ever guess how far you’d go
You’re the greatest, the greatest that ever was
You never quit till the finish line
You always win with your head held high
Your legend will never die
You’re the greatest, the greatest that ever was
Ever was, ever was
Ever was, ever was
Ever was, ever was
You’re the greatest, the greatest that ever was
Ever was, ever was
Ever was, ever was
Ever was, ever was
Hey!

You never quit till the finish line
You always win with your head held high
Your legend will never die
You’re the greatest, the greatest that ever was
