Each verse shares the intricate thoughts of vowing to push himself as hard as he can in order to achieve all of his dreams while also showing his listeners that it’s possible to dream big and accomplish everything we want.

The visualizer shows Fidelis standing in his own element in all black clothing, standing in front of a hanging microphone in a COLORS style allowing his voice and presence to shine away from the bright orange and purple hues in the background.
