"Stay Alive" as written by and Christopher Taylor/ormandy Brown....
Oh, your fingers were crossed behind your back
Before you ever gave me a chance
But now I have learned to trust myself
And I don't need anyone else

No one's here to light the candle
No one's here to light the way
It's something I will have to handle
My way

I've got to open up my eyes
And find a way to kill the boredom
I watch the time go by
Now it's time for me to get mine

Out of room, out of places to hide
Backed up in the corner I know I will stay alive
Out of room, out of places to hide
Backed up in the corner I know I will stay alive

The lights are still on
And I am still here there's nothing left to fear
A vision I've seen, a fire will burn
No longer will I wait my turn

No one's here to light the candle
No one's here to light the way
It's something I will have to handle
My way

I've got to open up my eyes
And find a way to kill the boredom
I watch the time go by
And now it's time for me to get mine

Out of room, out of places to hide
Backed up in the corner I know I will stay alive
Out of room, out of places to hide
Backed up in the corner I know I will stay alive

Stay alive
Stay alive
This time, this time
It's time for me to get mine

Out of room, out of places to hide
Backed up in the corner I know I will stay alive
Out of room, out of places to hide
Backed up in the corner I know I will stay alive

I will stay alive, I will stay alive
I will stay alive, I will stay alive

    General CommentWhat a Awesome Song.. cant wait till the "live" album
    I think this song is about whatever happens in life or in a certain time, that you can find a way to live. No matter how tough it may be, I think we can survive it.

    General CommentJust what I needed. They always come through with a song about staying strong or facing your problems whenever things get rough or even when people are in your face about BS. They always come through.

    Well done Trapt.


    Well done.

    General CommentYeah the video sucked. But thats cause they ran out of money and shit. Their going down hill and it pisses me off. Cause their the best band ever. Every1 is just illegaly dling the songs and crap. Its running them poor. And now their with a different label, which might be cause they arent meeting up to the effing standards. EVERY1 BUY THEIR FREAKING CD! Its the best band ever, and u definately wont regret it. Their lyrics just connect with you.

    General Commentum, do you realize that this video probably costs more than a "regular" video, like, for instance - their video for Echo. they didn't run out of money or anything. they just tried something different.

    while I don't like the video either, I love the song.

    General CommentTo me this song is about being trapped, "backed up in a corner" so to speak, and knowing that there is a way out. There will be a solution to help you get somewhere better, hence "Stay Alive". This song is too awesome for mere words, and i can't wait to get their next release.
