"Alive and Kicking" as written by and James Kerr Charles Burchill....
I'm gettin'
I'm gettin'
I'm gettin'

I'm gettin' over
And pushing past all the bullshit
And getting right to the root
Of what the problem really is
The reasons for the misunderstandings
The emergency landings
On a plane headed for home
It's where the heart was living
Till it was without feeling
And started revealing itself to everyone else
By just packing up, moving out
Saying it could do without
A barely able, unstable, running off at the mouth

So I'm tearing this and everything else between
Me and what I wanna do, to pieces
I'm tearing you and everything else between
Me and you to memory
I'm stronger now even after everything that you did
Still alive and kicking
I'm better now, I'm awake
Now I can see, everything in front of me (now)
I'm stronger now even after everything that you did
Still alive and kicking
I'm better now, I'm awake
Now I can see, everything in front of me (now)

Now if you would've waited one second
You wouldn't feel so second
The second I put you first
It made the situation worse
'cause you wanna take advantage and control of the things
That I manage to keep under control
Like, my happiness, my family, and all of my music
You had it all
You chose to abuse it

So I'm tearing this and everything else between
Me and what I wanna do, to pieces
I'm tearing you and everything else between
Me and you to memory
I'm stronger now even after everything that you did
Still alive and kicking
I'm better now, I'm awake
Now I can see, everything in front of me (now)
I'm stronger now even after everything that you did
Still alive and kicking
I'm better now, I'm awake
Now I can see, everything in front of me (now)

What's wrong with me?
You want to know what's wrong with me?
I could ask you the exact same thing
What's wrong with me?
You want to know what's wrong with me?
I could ask you the exact same thing
I have my opinion and you have yours
You don't have to like mine, 'cause I don't like yours
I have my opinion and you have yours
You don't have to like mine, 'cause I don't like yours
What's wrong with you?
I want to know what's wrong with you
And why this doesn't make sense to you
What's wrong with you?
I want to know what's wrong with you
And why this doesn't make sense to you

I'm stronger now even after everything that you did
Still alive and kicking
I'm better now, I'm awake
Now I can see, everything in front of me (now)
I'm stronger now even after everything that you did
Still alive and kick (Woooah)
I'm better now, I'm awake
Now I can see, everything in front of me (now)

Now I see everything
In front of me (now)
Now I see everything
In front of me (now)

    General CommentHoly shit NONPOINT is fucking amazing - this is one of the best songs (my personal fav) off the new CD 'To the Pain'. On a whole the CD blows me away I listen to all kinds of music and all genres and this CD never leaves my system OMG get it. Other great tracks are Bullet with a name on it ~ The Wreckoning ~ Buscandome they are all great.

    This song could have alot of meanings but it looks to me like two people arguing over politics, NONPOINT is the new/better rage against the machine.

    General Commenti'm only gunna breakdown parts of the song cuz the whole thing would take too long to read

    in the starting paragraph he is trying to figure out what went wrong"I'm gettin' over
    and pushing past all the bullshit
    and getting right to the root
    of what the problem really is
    The reasons for the misunderstandings"

    then he says if you had waited you wouldnt have felt rushed when i made you mine(first) and it only made things worse


    So I'm tearing this and everything else between
    me and what I wanna do, to pieces
    I'm tearing you and everything else between
    me and you to memory
    I'm stronger now even after everything that you did
    Still alive and kicking
    I'm better now, I'm awake
    Now I can see, everything in front of me (now)
    I'm stronger now even after everything that you did
    Still alive and kicking
    I'm better now, I'm awake
    Now I can see, everything in front of me (now)

    hes destroying old boundaries to live by his own book...he is tried to sever his emotional ties with this person so they become only a memory...the problem has only made him stronger as usuall...his not crushed by emotional depression so he's still alive and kicking...he can now see what he's doing and wont make the same mistake twice...

    What's wrong with me?
    You want to know what's wrong with me?
    I could ask you the exact same thing
    What's wrong with me?
    You want to know what's wrong with me?
    I could ask you the exact same thing
    I have my opinion and you have yours
    You don't have to like mine, cuz I don't like yours
    I have my opinion and you have yours
    You don't have to like mine, cuz I don't like yours
    What's wrong with you?
    I want to know whats wrong with you
    and why this doesn't make sense to you
    What's wrong with you?
    I want to know whats wrong with you
    and why this doesn't make sense to you

    this part of the song could possibly be some of the words exchanged in an argument or a fight that made the problem occur...he is saying he doesnt care about what they think yaddy yaddy yaddy thanks for reading

    General Commenti think this song is about record labels...or their old record label cause i think they were dropped or something...or they left...either way i think its about their label situation

    Great song by a great band

    General CommentThe essence of being an individual beyond the lack of human appreciation, for it is a common desire that everyone think as one's own belief yet true harmony is only an inner reception that is satisfied by accepting normalcy in oneself!

    General CommentI listen to this song and think about my ex...as im pushing myself at the gym and listening to this im thinking to myself "look at what Ive done and how far I have come. I no longer sit at home wallowing in depression/grief/regret. Im getting my shit together while you sit on your ass and rot. Im tearing it up and focusing on what I want. So F*** you and have a nice day. :)

    Great song to listen to at the gym!!!

    General CommentI'd take a guess.. that this entire CD is about a breakup...

    To better quote my friend.. "Someone really pissed him the f*ck off"

    All of the songs on the cd I could easily find meaning and feeling into my breakup I just experienced perhaps a month prior to this cd coming out.. either way.. I love their new album "To The Pain"
