I'm Alive Lyrics

Never again will I be dishonored
And never again will I be reminded
Of living within the world of the jaded
They kill inspiration
It's my obligation
To never again, allow this to happen
Where do I begin?
The choices are endless

    A quote from David himself says this song is "About people who try to change you. About those people who try to force you into doing something you don't want to do. In relation to our music, our art, our creativity."

    The meaning of the song's is to highlight a person individuality and that people will try to make change us, but we must stay strong and remember that we should hold what's precious to us and be who we are not change because of what other's think, we must stand strong; "i am not alone, brothers, give me your arms now" says that there are people who will except you for you, this people will be like your brother; like your family.

    So many meanings! I used to sing this back in YR 12!
    You carry a gift, whether it's singing, drawing, writing, whatever, and those people who don't understand just wanna take it all away from you. But you won't let them, you have to keep strong because there were others just like you who fell. you got out of the place where all these people were, but they keep trying to drag you back down with them again! Aurgh!

    This song is obviously about when he was only 15 and passed his first Driver's Test. Everyone told him he'd fail, maybe even die, but after living through it, he proclaimed with the valor of an ancient warrior, that he is alive.

    I have taken a good time to carefully study this song and the very message it contained. This song tries to send a message in an unclear manner concerning the falling spirit's promise to destroy the world. The song in itself shows solidarity and support in favor of the SATAN. Try reversing the title of the song by writing it starting from the last letter E, you will have 'EVIL AM I'. You also need to study the history of the FALLING SPIRIT in the holy books of all established religions and then carefully compare it with the song.

    it's about ancestry, where you come from and gifts you have been blessed with, don't let anybody they can't taken away, the only way it will happen is is you're dead.

    I believe David Draiman wrote this based on a real life experience in his childhood. As a teenager, he was forced into a religious institution, and was pressured to change himself into something he was not and become more religious.

    "And never again will I be reminded
    Of living within the world of the jaded"

    That clearly alludes to him being pressured in the institution to change.

    "The thing I treasure most in life cannot be taken away
    There will never be a reason why I will surrender to your advice
    To change myself, I'd rather die
    Though they will not understand"

    He clung on to what was precious to him, his creativity, and musical talent, rose against, and opposed to these changes.

    It is a classic example of a motivated narcissistic personality type recovering from an emotional crisis.

    I can really relate to this song. It's about not letting anyone or anything dishonor you or tell you you're not good enough. Its says that no matter how much you get pushed around or told that you're not right, they can never take your life from you with words.

    Be yourself, because in the end, that's all you'll ever have. Never give your individuality away
