Forever
Fabian Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I am a child in this money-hungry, blood-thirsty country, country
God damn it's been awhile since we've got some freedom, ain't it funny, funny
I'm driving down the 101 right around 1:01
The flag lights flash behind me
They say I should fear no one but i can't help but fear someone
When they treat me like I don't exist

I don't know what this is
But I think they want me down
And if I go down, down, down, down, down, down, down
Just promise me this, make sure that I live

Forever
Forever
Forever
Forever
Forever
Forever

I am a child in this money-hungry, blood-thirsty country, country
What's the point of dying when the afterlife doesn't taste like honey, honey
I'm driving down the 101 on my way to be someone
My whole life flashes in-front of me
They say I should fear no one but I can't help but fear someone
When they treat me like I'm not worth it

I don't know what this is
But I think they want me down
And if I go down, down, down, down, down, down, down
Just promise me this, make sure that I live

Forever

Gonna live forever
Let me live forever
Wanna live forever
Let me live forever
Wanna live forever
Wanna live forever
Wanna live for
Wanna live for
Wanna live for
Wanna live for

I don't know what this is
But I think they want me down
And if I go down, down, down, down, down, down, down
Just promise me this, make sure that I live

Forever

Wanna live forever
Wanna live forever

I don't know what this is
But I think they want me down
And if I go down, down, down, down, down, down, down
Just promise me this, make sure that I live

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Fabian's song "Forever" convey a sense of frustration and defiance towards societal expectations and the struggle for freedom and recognition. The song starts by portraying the singer as a child in a country that prioritizes wealth and violence. The use of the phrases "money-hungry" and "blood-thirsty" suggests a society consumed by materialism and aggression. The singer reflects on the lack of freedom and the passage of time as they drive along the 101 highway, symbolizing the journey towards their aspirations.


The lyrics also highlight the feeling of being invisible and unimportant to those in power. The mention of the flag lights flashing behind the singer suggests a presence of authority, but one that fails to acknowledge their existence. Despite the message to fear no one, the singer cannot help but feel a sense of fear towards those who disregard their worth.


In the second verse, the lyrics continue to express the frustrations of being unseen and undervalued. The singer questions the point of dying when the afterlife does not hold the promise of happiness. They continue to drive along the 101, reflecting on their life flashing before their eyes. The repetition of the phrase "I'm not worth it" emphasizes the feelings of insignificance and the desire for recognition and validation.
