Noise. Noise. Noise.
Before I was thinking, my burden was light
Noise. Noise. Noise.
Target in sight
Noise. Noise. Noise.
And I recall: When was it I first wanted to be on top?

They say it’s not possible
They say it’s not done
Yet I’ll prove that it’s probable
And I’ve already won

Put my best foot forward
Set a goal in my mind
All others unheard –
That’s victory calling
And it’s that that I’ll find
As I break through this wall
So don’t help me up, I’m not falling
I’m not cold – don’t wrap me in a shawl

So as I claim my prize
From my conquest,
Let all voices rise
In a songfest

Because I’ve already won
