Failure is not an Option

Failure is not an option
You said to me
And I laugh cause you're right
It's compulsory
And you know, well maybe you don't?

Failure is not an option
Success just must be done
Is usually a good sign
Failures the likely outcome
Do you believe? You believe.

Meanwhile in the real world
I'm getting things done
Still I'm in the real world
And it's just a lame rerun

Failure is not an option
Said with passion to stir
But success is not what I'd say
Is likely to occur
But we try? I guess we try.

Failure is not an option
Our goals must be met
Is not the sort of wager
That I'd call a safe bet
And good luck? There's always luck.

Meanwhile in the real world
I'm doing what I can
Still I'm in the same world
Within this caravan

Failure is not an option
You say seriously
Completely unaware
That it's mandatory
And you know. well maybe you don't?
Do you believe? You believe.
But we try? I guess we try.
So good luck? There's always luck.

Believing in yourself against all odds and that you cannot fail is a good motivator for the things in life about which you are passionate and the dreams/hopes that give your life meaning. However, most things in life are not the key drivers of your soul. It is laughable to hear someone else tell you that "failure is not an option" for some ill-advised, poorly-conceived objective that is in fact very likely to fail.
