But you have to watch out because things change. Maybe you're not really a winner. Maybe you're not as good as what they thought. Maybe you better lay back, not expose yourself. You can still win, they just won't know it.
Or maybe you're a loser. Maybe you like it. Who knows? I'm not inside your body. Maybe it feels good to lose, to give up the struggle, to admit you'll never win. After all, the game is stacked in favor of the winners and someone's got to lose. If you're in the basement you can't fall from the top. It's a lot safer and you're bound to survive.
