Eye of the Theorem

To sing along with Survivor's Eye of the Tiger (youtube: Survivor - Eye of the Tiger)

Risin' up, back on the desk
Did my research, took my papers
Went the distance, now I'm back on my computer
Just a man and his will to publish

So many pages, it's going too slow
You change your passion for glory
Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past
You must struggle just to keep them alive

It's the eye of the theorem, it's the cream of the proof
Risin' up to the challenge of our thesis
And the last known advisor stalks his prey in the room
And he's watchin' us all in the eye of the theorem

Proof to proof, out in the congress
Hangin' tough, stayin' bored
They stack the odds 'til we take to review
For we go with the skill to publish

It's the eye of the theorem, it's the cream of the proof
Risin' up to the challenge of our thesis
And the last known advisor stalks his prey in the room
And he's watchin' us all in the eye of the theorem

Risin' up, straight to the top
Have the impact, got the factor
Went the distance, now I'm not gonna stop
Just a man and his will to publish

It's the eye of the theorem, it's the cream of the proof
Risin' up to the challenge of our thesis
And the last known advisor stalks his prey in the room
And he's watchin' us all in the eye of the theorem

Written for a friend who recently read his thesis. Congratulations VM-V!
