  • How do we agree?
    How do we exceed?
    Places that our lives have taken
    Sharpened instruments
    Failed experiments
    Faces of the occupation

    Boxing helps. I guess, I think it toughens your mind
    I think you push yourself beyond certain limits, past
    The worst thing in the world is to be in a fight and to get tired
    You don't want to get tired in a fight

    Say that you can show me
    You don't know me
    You want to live oh
    Say that you can own me
    You think you know me but you're wrong

    No matter how much natural ability you have
    There's a lot of working at it
    You know, you don't need, Muhammad Ali was a great fighter
    But if he didn't train as hard as he did, he
    You'd never hear the name Muhammad Ali become
    You have to train hard
    You have to devote yourself one hundred percent

    You can't be a success if you don't have any part of it
    Like if you don't have discipline. You need discipline
    You need discipline to do things
    And the discipline is you do it without things, you know?

    No matter if we say we believe this, we believe that
    You know there's certain things we believe
    But just how strongly we believe is a matter, you know
    It's what we want to believe
    A force much stronger than us, a power
    A power much more powerful, you know? But we still don't know
    No matter how much we think we believe
    We still tremor at the thought of dying
    We shiver almost died, you know?
    There's something out there
    But just to me it's like the great unknown. You know? I don't know.

    One of the most important things in life
    Is to have people who care about you, and you care about
    You know Love is the magic word, it is, you know?
    If it wasn't for love I wouldn't be here today Writer/s: DUNCAN COUTTS, JEREMY TAGGART, RAINE MAIDA, STEVE MAZUR
