"He who forgets, will be destined to remember..."

The Hours - Ali in the Jungle

It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish.
And it’s not where you’re from, it’s where you’re at.

Everybody gets knocked down,
everybody gets knocked down —
how quick are you gonna get up?
how quick are you gonna get up?
Everybody gets knocked down,
everybody gets knocked down —
how quick are you gonna get up?
just how are you gonna get up?

Like Ali in the jungle,
like Nelson in jail,
like Simpson on the mountain;
with odds like that, they were bound to fail.
Like Keller in the darkness,
like Adams in the dock,
like Ludwig Van — how I love that man — well the guy went deaf and didn’t give a fuck, no…
no, no, no…

It’s not where you are, it’s where you’re going,
Where are you going?
And it’s not about the things you’ve done, it’s what you’re doing now,
What are you doing now?

Everybody gets knocked down,
everybody gets knocked down —
how quick are you gonna get up?
how quick are you gonna get up now?
Everybody gets knocked down,
everybody gets knocked down —
how quick are you gonna get up?
just how are you gonna get up?

Like Ali in the jungle,
like Nelson in jail,
like Simpson on the mountain;
with odds like that, they were bound to fail.
Like Keller in the darkness,
like Adams in the dock,
like Ludwig Van — how I love that man — well the guy went deaf and didn’t give a fuck, no…
no, no, no…

It’s the greatest comeback since Lazarus…

These lyrics are by The Hours, from Ali in the Jungle. I firmly believe this song is named after me.. Posted at 7:02am on 13 May 2008.
