"Reason I'm Alive" as written by Dj Ashba, Nikki Sixx, Ryan Mccombs, Stephen Benton, Michael Luce and C.j. Pierce....
Whatever happened to 'till death do us part?
Together forever slowly severed us apart
You know, dreams are just like lies (dreams are just like lies), when you walk away?
I never want to feel again, as the blackness settles in
And I only have one thing left to say

You're the reason that I'm alive
Twist that knife but I just won't die
You're the reason that I'm alive (reason that I'm alive)
Leave you here as you watch me fly away
Woah-oh, woah-oh, as you watch me fly away
Watch me fly away

Whatever happened to the lies that I believed?
And wasn't it you that said the truth will set us free?
You know, dreams are just like lies (dreams are just like lies), when you walk away?
And we never even had a chance, as the sadness slips away
And I only have one thing left to say

You're the reason that I'm alive (reason that I'm alive)
Twist that knife but I just won't die
You're the reason that I'm alive (reason that I'm alive)
Leave you here as you watch me fly away
Woah-oh, woah-oh, as you watch me fly away
Woah-oh, woah-oh, as you watch me fly away

I'm rising up on broken wings
And I'm choking back these empty sins
Well I hope you take this, take this as you want

You're the reason that I'm alive (reason that I'm alive)
Twist that knife but I just won't die
You're the reason that I'm alive (reason that I'm alive)
Leave you here as you watch me fly away
Woah-oh, woah-oh, as you watch me fly away
Woah-oh, woah-oh, as you watch me fly away
Watch me fly, watch me fly, watch me fly away
Watch me fly, watch me fly, watch me fly away
Watch me fly, watch me fly, watch me fly away

    Song MeaningI think this is about one of three or all. Dedication and respect shown to those who fought and fight in the war for our existance and freedom. Also bodes the power of true, unconditional love how it can dominate or eliminate our lives either with the presence of or the absence of it. Also it could be interpretting a true love that turned sour.

    General CommentAs I mentioned this song was written by Motley Crue and Sixx: AM bassist Nikki Sixx. Originally Saliva's "Rest in Pieces" was written by Sixx for Drowning Pool, but Dave died. Since he helped with the record he gave them this song instead I would guess.

    Anyways, I think the meaning is about being with a woman and after getting married they aren't as close, his dream of being happy with her was just a lie. He's trying to be strong though, and wants to rise up and leave. I could be way off on a few parts though, I think this is one of those songs that are written specifically so the listener can use their own interpretation to it.
