A new take on an old question
My breaths are coming slowly
My body is so weak
I barely hear my own soft words
When I attempt to speak

My strength is quickly fading
My system shutting down
Yes, this could be my last hurrah
They’ll put me in the ground

My only friend stands by me
A giant of a man
They call him Atlas for his size
Oh, you would understand

My life in now near over
It is my own damn fault
But please before I pass away
Tell me, "Who is John Galt?"

Atlas shrugged
"Who cares?"
