If the fish swam out of the ocean 
And grew legs and they started walking
And the apes climbed down from the trees 
And grew tall and they started talking

And the stars fell out of the sky
And the tears rolled into the ocean 
And now I'm looking for a reason why
You even set my world into motion 

'Cause if you're not really here
Then the stars don't even matter 
Now I'm filled to the top with fear
That it's all just a bunch of matter 

'Cause if you're not really here
Then I don't want to be either 
I wanna be next to you
 Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold

I look up into the night sky
And see a thousand eyes staring back
And all around these golden beacons
I see nothing but black 

I feel a weight of something beyond them
I don't see what I can feel
If vision is the only validation 
Then most of my life isn't real

'Cause if you're not really here
Then the stars don't even matter 
Now I'm filled to the top with fear
But it's all just a bunch of matter 

'Cause if you're not really here
Then I don't want to be either 
I wanna be next to you
 Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold
I wanna be next to you
 Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold

 Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold
 Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold
 Black and gold

'Cause if you're not really here
Then the stars don't even matter 
Now I'm filled to the top with fear
But it's all just a bunch of matter 

'Cause if you're not really here
Then I don't want to be either 
I wanna be next to you
 Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold

 Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold
 Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold
 Black and gold, black and gold
