The track is fine, but it gives me a serendipitous excuse to mention that I just finished re-watching Gurren Lagann last night.

I’m a 35 year old man, and color me shocked how much I needed to hear and process the messages in a show written for teenagers.

Gotta believe in the me that believes in the versions of the people around me that believe in me. Grit your teeth, grow to be better than who we were three minutes ago.

It seems so juvenile, but sometimes you need that Kamina pep talk.
