"I'd die for you," that's easy to say
We have a list of people that we would take
A bullet for them, a bullet for you
A bullet for everybody in this room
But I don't seem to see many bullets coming through
See many bullets coming through
Metaphorically, I'm the man
But literally, I don't know what I'd do

"I'd live for you, " and that's hard to do
Even harder to say when you know it's not true
Even harder to write when you know that tonight
There were people back home who tried talking to you
But then you ignored them still
All these questions they're for real like
Who would you live for?
Who would you die for?
And would you ever ****?
the italicized is my favorite section and, I think, the most important. Oftentimes we think that theoretically we're great people but our actions, both big and small, don't match up- or we're made to believe we're horrible people but our actions are the actions of a decent human being and a good friend. However, no matter what we think we'd do in these grand situations, what matters is the decisions we actually make.
