"I'm alive!"
"I'm alive!"
Final words of a god left drowning
Burned alive
Burned alive
Scorch the angels out from the skies

Building up the walls to surround us in
From a world built on sin
Building up the strength for the release
From a world corrupted
To be unseen
With the eyes
For it's the ground that we lie on
Open wide
Open mind
Nail your mouths shut it's this world

Wasting lives away
Consume to filling
Only waking
For the feeding
Give me spark to light the world
Up in flames reignite
A changing to better times
End this now
Pillars
Serpents
Make it over
Give me spark to light the world
Up in flames reignite
A changing to better times
End this now
So no more are these dreams of angels
Washed away with the tears

    General CommentHO ho man!!!! I love this song. I used to blast it as I pulled into the parking lot at work, only one person out of hundreds who looked gave a smile and mouthed "TriViuM." But that one true fan made it SO worth it. I love trivium.

    General Comment*TRIVIUM IS THE NEXT METALLICA* Every one of Triviums songs have a powerful message. This song to me means the world today is so fucked up and corrupted. The pillars that surround them are like a place where they go in there minds/wherever to get away from the everyday bullshit. Thats what I take from the song =)

    General CommentTRIVIUM IS NOT THE NEXT METALLICA. They will not sell 100 million records unless they drastically change their sound. IMO, they are going to be HUGE though. I really love them and have seen them twice now. They are unbelievably gifted at guitar and have the heaviest sound I've heard in awhie.

    My favorite part of the song is the "Give me spark, to light the world, up in flames, reignite." Love the vocals and the guitar riff underneath it. This song has a kickass intro as well.

    General Commenttrivium is kick ass. and no they arent the next metallica. they are greater than metallica not on the fan number basis but because they are unique to a new style of metal and i feel that metal will be pulled into a better direction instead of being entirely diluted with screaming. i like screaming but it is getting old now.

    General Commentnot the next metallica. nothing will ever replace metallica. i think it's about how modern things control us, and that was not what was EVER intended by humankind.
