"Alive" as written by and Jason David/beshears Roy....
E, that all this time has passed us
And all we were has left us, wishing we were there again
We're all older now, but we still fall down and scrape our knees

Well I can't believe that all these lines keep getting deeper
I watch children become fathers as their mothers weep
And I can see somehow, that it's all about here and now
But I feel something rushing over me and I'm alive
I'm alive
I feel something rushing over me and I'm alive
I'm alive
Thank God I'm alive

You're speaking to me through the beauty of creation
From the highest elevation, to the depths of seas
So I'm not afraid to face this life of brevity

'Cause I feel something rushing over me and I'm alive
I'm alive
I feel something rushing over me and I'm alive
I'm alive
Thank God I'm alive

We're alive, to glorify
We're alive, to glorify
We're alive, to glorify, the maker of this life
We're alive, to glorify, the maker of this life

    My InterpretationThis song is about acknowledging one's own immortality, reflecting on their life experiences, and a declaration to live for the moment instead of worrying about death. He reflects on his past experiences and admits that he realizes that life is short ("this life of brevity"), yet he is still alive now and still has time left. The song's bridge, "We're alive, to glorify, the maker of this life" is his declaration that with God, his life is worth living and he doesn't have to fear death because he trusts Him.

    In my opinion, this is one of the more empowering Building 429 songs.
