It's not about success; it's about significance.

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.


The wind whispers "death" tonight
With darkness the skies are veiled
And while you encompass me inside
I see I cannot prevail

The wind whispers "death" tonight
Onto debris I attempt to clutch
But your savage attacks are too much to fight
Weak am I against your icy touch

The wind whispers "death" tonight
As you plummet, explosives sound
And I see my life flash before my eyes
as you drag me deeper down

The wind whispers "death" tonight
I'm finally in your confined embrace
Too late is it now for your anger to subside
for I am off to a better place
