"Alive!" as written by Anthony Anderson, Steve Smith, Dane Anthony Deviller, Syed Sean Hosein and Annette Denise Stamatelatos....
Hot like the sun
Wet like the rain
Green like the leaves
Life is a game

Stars in my head
Shine Moon shine
Everything's cool
And I feel fine!

Can you touch
The root that feeds us?
Can you hear
The words that I say?
Can you feel
The music move you?
Can you feel alive today?

Vana Dea
Dzjo Vana Dea
La Vana doh
Aribedibodah
Vana Dea
Dzjo Vana Dea
La Vana doh
Aribedah

(Goddess Vana
Sweet vernal goddess)

Vana Dea
Dzjo Vana Dea
La Vana doh
Aribedibodah
Vana Dea
Dzjo Vana Dea
La Vana doh
Aribedah

Falledal do, falledal dea
Falledal do, falledal da
Falledal do, falledal dea

Ya Vana Dea ribeda

(Dance for Vana,
Hail goddes of spring)

Can you touch
The root that feeds us?
Can you hear
The words that I say?
Can you feel
The music move you?
Can you feel alive today?

Vana Dea
Dzjo Vana Dea
La Vana doh
Aribedibodah
Vana Dea
Dzjo Vana Dea
La Vana doh
Aribedah

Vana Dea
Dzjo Vana Dea
La Vana doh

Falledal do, falledal dea
Falledal do, falledal da
Falledal do, falledal dea

Ya Vana Dea ribeda

Can you touch
The root that feeds us?
Can you hear
The words that I say?
Can you feel
The music move you?
Can you feel alive today?

Strong like the grass, tall like a tree
Free like the wind, eternally
Nothing to lose, nothing to gain
Just running wild, again and again and again

Can you touch
The root that feeds us?
Can you hear
The words that I say?
Can you feel
The music move you?
Can you feel alive today?

Falledal do, falledal dea
Falledal do, falledal da
Falledal do, falledal dea

Ya Vana Dea ribeda

Bumblebees and blossom, only trees and me
Humble bees and blossom, only trees and me

    My InterpretationThis song is about feeling alive, not just knowing you are alive.
    As a folk lore band, omnia usually appeal to the feelings and emotions instead of the thoughts and explanations.
    The song starts pointing similarities between the singer and nature, but the singer here should be seen as all the ones listening to the song too. This feeling of oneness with nature is central to the message here.

    Moving forward, the singer asks the ones listening:Can feel the roots that feed us? It is as a metaphor to being thankful to the land for food, as feeling thankful and respecting the soil. More than just a question, it's an invitation to the listener to get in touch with nature.
    Can you hear the words that I say? Has the same objective, to make the person feel draw towards hearing not only the song, but all around him, abdicating from thoughts and judgements about the sounds - only hearing them.
    Can you feel the music move you? Doesn't wwander away from the other two questions, for the meaning here is to invite the listener to grow counscious of the life he lives - as of touching, hearing and feeling it in the now.

    The part in other language seems to be a ritualistic song in honor of Vana. I know nothing about it, so that's just my opinion.

    Closer to the end, the singer says the similarities of life to nature itself, comparing it to the trees, wind and the wilds - there is nothing to lose, there is nothing to gain, there's only 'running wild', again, again and again.

    Lovely song that's better listened just after waking up!
