It’s hard to survive in Westeros. With each new episode of Game of Thrones, fans never know if this might be the one where their favorite character might get decapitated, or eaten by dogs, or torn apart by ice zombies; just keeping track of the series’ body count is a formidable task. It’s that atmosphere that pervades a new YouTube video that edits together dialogue from across the series to make Game of Thrones characters look like they’re singing Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive.”

Almost everyone appears in the video, even long-departed characters like Joffrey. We catch glimpses of all of Westeros, from Ramsay Bolton in the North to court scheming in King’s Landing and Daenerys Targaryen across the sea. For once, everyone on the show is united in professing their will to survive — even though, as we all know, they probably won’t.

Watch the video above. Game of Thrones season 7 is set to premiere on HBO on July 16.
