I make films for you.
You may think you're ruining me, but you're spurring me on.
You think you can undermine me, you think you can tell me I'm not strong enough, or not talented enough, you can say whatever you want.
You think I don't work hard? Well that's just fine.
You think I just sit around watching films? Well that's just fine.
My life will be filled with beautiful films that I've created. I'll have the art, the money, the women, the big house, the love, the friends.. and I'll do it all for YOU.
YOU, the one who tells me I should get a real job.
YOU, the one who tells me that I'm not going to make it.
I see your hate.
I see your jealousy.
I see your pain.
It gives me vision.
It gives me strength.
It gives me determination.
You could be right;
I may just be nothing.
But I am giving it everything.
I am giving it everything.
Nearly everything I do, on nearly every single day, is in some way related to, or because of; the very things I am focusing my career and my life on. You can tell me it's pointless, you can tell me I don't know what I'm doing, you can do that little chuckle you do when I show you my work, you can even tell me 'your idea has been done before,' - but I will not react with anger, or hate, because I am not the same as you.
You can stay on the platform,
because I am taking the train out of here.
it's a train full of dreamers and workers and singers and writers and dancers,
and we're getting the train out of here.
we know where we're going.
