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 my tears
Rolled into the ocean
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 looked up
Into the grey sky
And see a thousand eyes
Staring back
And all around
These golden beacons
I see nothing but black

I feel the 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
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

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
Black and gold
Black and gold
Black and gold
Black and gold
