"When the legends die,
dreams die also,
And when dreams die,
there is no greatness."
And when there is no greatness,
who will suffer the most?
Well, I will tell you, the people.
The people who don't know their own shadows,
And cannot see their visions clearly,
And the ones who do not know themselves pretty well,
But someday when you stop and think,
You'll see the real image
of yourself and the ones
that were before you
and then you'll see.
