[Verse:]
If the fish swam out of the ocean, and grew legs and they started walking
And the apes climbed out from the trees, and grew tall and they started talking
And the stars fall out of the sky, and my tears rolled into the ocean
And now I'm looking for a reason why, you'd even set my world into motion

[Chorus:]
Cause if you're not really there, then the stars don't even matter
Now I fell to the top and feel
And it's all just a bunch of matter
Cause if you're not really there, then I don't want to be either
I want be next to you
Black and gold, black and gold, black gold

[Verse:]
And I looked up into the night sky, I see a thousand eyes staring back
And all around these golden beacons I see nothing but black
I feel the weight of something beyond though, I don't see what I can feel
If vision is the only validation, then most of my life isn't real

[Chorus:]
Cause if you're not really there, then the stars don't even matter
Now I fell to the top and feel
And it's all just a bunch of matter
Cause if you're not really there, then I don't want to be either
I want be next to you
Black and gold, black and gold, black gold

I want to be next to you
Black and gold

[Verse:]
Cause if you're not really here
Then I don't want to be either
I want be next to you
Black and gold, black and gold, black gold
