It worries me,
Will my music last until the end of everything?
So fate take heed,
I don't plan on being forgotten when you bury me.
Now I just need
To think of something I can say that's worth remembering.
I'm here to stay,
I won't fade away.

When I'm gone, I'll live on,
I won't be left behind, I'll make my mark on history.
My name will remain,
And won't be lost in time, or sink into obscurity.
I'm here to stay, in never-ending memory,
I will not fade away.

I understand
Half my words don't mean a thing because they're black and white.
But here I stand,
Though one-dimensional, I hope that I can leave behind
A face in the sand,
A final sign of how I raged against the dying light.
I'm here to stay,
I won't fade away.

When I'm gone, I'll live on,
I won't be left behind, I'll make my mark on history.
My thought will be sought,
And won't be lost in time, or sink into obscurity.
I'm here to stay, I leave behind my legacy,
I will not fade away.

Now I'm gone, I live on,
A thousand years or so have passed, and still my music sells.
Though interred, I'm still heard,
'Cause what I lacked in depth, I made up for in decibels.

Now I'm gone, I live on,
I won't be left behind, I made my mark on history.
My name still remains,
And won't be lost in time, or sink into obscurity.
I'm here to stay, you'll never hear the last of me,
I will not fade away.

Now I'm gone, I live on,
Though interred, I'm still heard,
For ever and ever,
I will not fade away.
