Rejoice despite the fact this world will kill you
Rejoice despite the fact this world will tear you to shreds
Rejoice because you're trying your best
Rejoice, the bed you sleep in is burning
Rejoice, the sky's f-ing falling
Rejoice, the world we know is turning
Rejoice, your father's been calling
Rejoice although this world will devastate you
Rejoice although this world will penetrate you
Rejoice although you will not survive
Rejoice you'll never make it out alive"
- Andrew Jackson Jihad
