Lyrics

Who is sitting here right now today?
This is the real me obviously
I'm a very philosophical person
And I'm gonna go there with you real quick
I believe in a higher power
Don't know the name, don't know where it's coming from
Don't even think that
But I believe that this power
And visualize with me real quick
Let's say it's a man up there or a woman or whatever
And they have a chart
And when you're born, they say, David Goggins
Born February 17th, 1975 at 6:00 AM
They write the chart down 'cause they can see everything
They know exactly where you're fucking supposed to be
They know what you're supposed to be

You die, you go to so called heaven
You arrive in heaven
I'm 300 pounds I retired as an Ecolab guy, which is okay
It's just a job, whatever
I go up there and God looks at me
And he's chosen my chart, and my chart on there says
You were supposed to be a Navy Seal
You're supposed to weigh 185 pounds
You're supposed to be
One of the smartest people in the planet
This, this, that, all this
You see this, and now you're in heaven
You made it to heaven, but you're like, God, God
I was supposed to live that life
I was supposed to live that life

And then you find out that the reason why
'Cause we all think that if we pray on it
If we do this, if we do that whatever
If we don't work, whatever
It's gonna magically happen for us
No I believe that when
I'm all said and done with
My whole job is to outwork the chart
Whatever the fucking chart says about me
The all knowing power up there I wanna get up there
And him look at me and say I know everything

I didn't fucking see this
I didn't fucking see this
I want feel that
I know everything
I didn't fucking see this
I didn't fucking see this
I want to feel that

I want to get to the other end of this fucking world
And however I'm being judged
Whoever's judging me to look at me and say
I did not fucking know
I had you at 185, had you at this
But all this other shit
I was writing as you were living it
I want to find more
All I can And in that fucking sack of shit
You have to dive in that to find more
Because if you're not willing to go in there
And face yourself, you're not gonna find anything
You're gonna live right here on surface man
Right here on surface
So, if there is an ending to this world
And there is somewhere to go and there's a judgment
You're gonna get there and you might see a chart
And that chart might tell you
Who the fuck you should have been
And now you get the rest of your life to think about that
Man, I could've lived a much better life
If I just, would've just suffered a little bit more
If I just would've went in that shit
And realized I had so much more
But fear and the 40%
And living here versus living here, being afraid
Stopped me
So that's I'm a big guy in visualizing
I'm a big guy in making a world
It may not exist
To me it does
To me it does

And I'm overpowering myself every day
And you gotta find tools to do that
That's the tool that I use
So that's what it's all about I believe that when
I'm all said and done with
My whole job is to outwork the chart
Whatever the fucking the chart says about me
The all-knowing power up there
I wanna get up there and him look at me and say

I know everything
I didn't fucking see this
I didn't fucking see this
I want to feel that
I know everything
I didn't fucking see this
I didn't fucking see this
I want to feel that
I want to feel that
I want to feel that
I want to feel that
I want to feel that
You wonder
What to make of it
I've thought about this for years and years and years and
I don't know why there should be an invisible syntactical intelligence
Giving language lessons in hyperspace
That certainly, consistently seems to be what is happening
I've thought a lot about language
As a result of that
First of all, it is the most remarkable thing we do
Chomsky shows
The deep structure of language is under genetic control
But that's like the assembly language level
Local expressions of language are epigenetic

[Chorus]
It seems to me that language
Is some kind of enterprise of human beings
That is not
Finished
It seems to me that language
Is some kind of enterprise of human beings
That is not
I only desire the approval of a relatively small number of people who I respect
If they said to me, “I think you're totally wrong on this, Douglas.”, then I'd listen
But when it's people who don't want me to do well, then of course I don't listen to them
It's one of the tools we all have to hone in our lives, to work out who wants us to do well
Who wishes us well, and to listen to them, even if they're critical of us, and they will be at times
And to separate out those people from the people who just, of course they don't want you to do well
They hate you, they hate everything about you, and whatever
But I don't have much sympathy with public figures who say, I can't say what I think, I can't speak up, and all this sort of thing
If you're not going to now, when are you going to?
If you're not going to in this life, what life are you expecting to come where you'll do it
Good evening
I wanted to give you an update on the current situation in Afghanistan
As you know, we were set to leave Afghanistan this month and as we began the final drawdown
I made some critical errors
Namely, I underestimated the strength of the Taliban
And I overestimated the strength and capability of the friendly Afghani forces
This was my fault
And due to my mistake, the Taliban has taken control of Afghanistan
There are reports now that ISIS and Al Qaeda are working alongside them
Unfortunately, there are tens of thousands of Americans on the ground there
As well as friends and allies of America on the ground
These people, Americans and our allies are all stranded
