My life is unremarkable
I am neither villain 
nor the hero.
Living life on the sidelines,
Always watching it quietly
from the shadows.

No events to mark my passing…
On a cosmic scale of 
10 above and 10 below
My life is unremarkable 
I am a zero
I am a zero

If you sacrifice 
to make things right
Or sway the tide 
with your fight
Take the world within your hands

Turn your dreams
into true deeds, 
Take action wherever 
there is need
and just do the best you can

You will be extraordinary

You will be remarkable
Not another zero

You will be extraordinary

You will be remarkable
Not another zero

Possibilities 
swiftly fly by
As soft whispers in the air
Waiting for anybody
to stop and listen
Wanting someone to care

The gods reward the champion
While the blind just watch the show
The indifferent are
the damned
Just a bunch of zeros…

If we sacrifice 
to make things right
Or sway the tide 
with our fight
Take the world within our hands

Turn our dreams 
into true deeds, 
Take action wherever
there is need
and just do the best we can

We will be extraordinary

We will be remarkable
Not another zero

We will be extraordinary

I will be remarkable
Not another zero
