Motivate yourself to finally get the hell out of here.
Retain your mental health, but above everything else,
Remember odds are stacked against you,
So whatever you might do, keep your goal clear.
Your chances of success will be impaired if you suggest that,
Everything will work out OK anyway.

To Victor, my old friend, you'll find your freedom in the end if you try.
That's if you try, try, try, I mean you've really got to try,
'Cause Estonia's not a place,
To let its custom slip away or simply fly by.
But with every dream I have you'll one day stumble off the map,
I know everything will work out OK, my friend.

So keep your head up and rearrange your life to survive,
'Cause a hostel in Tallinn can't contain the ambition in your eyes.

You've taken everything; a strategy you'll need to win, so you think.
But the facts you're presenting don't seem at all like the real thing.
Instead, they lack consistency,
And that can truly confuse me, and I don't need that.
You're chances of success will be impaired if you dare to suggest that,
Everything will work out OK.
