It's not where you come from, it's more where you're going
And knowing the going might get strange
The world's greatest writers are all drunks and fighters
Keep going, that isn't gonna change

Will you still wager on the egg? Is it the egg or are you chicken?
There's an outside possibility, your life might start to kick in
Your heart will start the race, will you chase or set the pace?
Brace yourself, the plot's about to thicken

It's not where you come from, it's more where you're going
And knowing the going might get strange
The world's greatest writers are all drunks and fighters
Keep going, that isn't gonna change

It's been a thousand years or two and still the seconds keep on clicking
Clogging cogs and greasing gears, still you can't stop the clock from ticking
It's time that's overrated, being great's become outdated
Apples, oranges not worth picking

It's not where you come from, it's more where you're going
And knowing the going might get strange
The world's greatest writers are all drunks and fighters
Keep going, that isn't gonna change
Come on!

Where is it you're going?
Who was it who said it?
Which stones are worth throwing?
Who will we discredit?

Pathetic aesthetic
In a world less poetic
It's not where you come from
It's going, go get it

It's not where you come from, it's more where you're going
And knowing the going might get strange
The world's greatest writers are all drunks and fighters
Keep going, that isn't gonna change

It's not where you come from, it's more where you're going
And knowing the going might get strange
The world's greatest writers are all drunks and fighters
Keep going, that isn't gonna change

Where is it you're going? (it's not where you come from)
Who was it who said it?
Which stones are worth throwing? (it's not where you come from)
Who will we discredit?

Pathetic aesthetic (it's not where you come from)
In a world less poetic
It's not where you come from
It's going, go get it
It's going, go get it
It's going, go get it
It's going, go get it
