"Alive" as written by and Maximilian Williams Sebastian Moser....
I cannot ever find a way
To throw these darkened thoughts away
Need a place to hide
It's thrown in my face everyday
Guess that's the price I have to pay
For what's inside my mind

Alive!
Alive!
Alive!
Alive!
Alive!
Alive!
Alive!
Alive!

I am alive
I will never run away
Places inside
My heart screams inside with pride
Once I cried
Now I wipe away the tears
Once I died
Now I'm alive

Alive!
Alive!
Alive!
Alive!
Alive!
Alive!
Alive!
Alive!

Little things tempt me everyday
Contemplating's how I like to play
Better not cross that line
What's this in my head I didn't say
It's something I can't throw away
What's inside my mind

I am alive
I will never run away
Places inside
My heart screams inside with pride
Once I cried
Now I wipe away the tears
Once I died
Now I'm alive

I bide my time
I'm intertwined
I'm falling in this place
I thought I left behind x2

I bide my time
I'm intertwined
I'm falling in this place
I thought I left behind
(Feeling so alive)
(Feeling so alive)

Alive!
Alive!
Alive!
Alive!

I am alive
I will never run away
Places inside
My heart screams inside with pride
Once I cried
Now I wipe away the tears
Once I died
Now I'm alive

    General CommentThis song is awesome, it should have been on the album instead of Need To. This is back when these guys were actually good.

    General Commenti think the meaning of the song is that he's proud of mind, his thoughts and who he is, thats the real him and hes happy about that, although many people may want to crush him for that he still wants to be him and not have to change himself just to have an easyer life, kinda saying he will not change or run from the real him, kinda like what faget of a clown was saying "Sumthing about it makes me wanna rise up like nothing can hold me done. you can never keep me down. I also think that is the meaning of this song. You'll never stop me from what i wanna do" and EinFlügelEngel was correct it is supposed to be guess instead of 'cause it's

    General CommentI love the bass on this song & to me alive's meaning refers to all the dead musicians that died too young & they've all seen crazy shit growing up & glad to all still be alive.

    General CommentWhat comes to my mind when I hear this song is Manic Depressive Bipolar disorder. Note that it says
    "I cannot ever find a way
    to throw these darkened thoughts away
    Need no place to hide
    It's thrown in my face everyday"

    If you have this disorder then you can probably relate to this. I know I can. It's pretty much about being overcame with dark thoughts. Rather it be about suicide, or hurting someone. I think it's about getting so used to these feelings that eventually your heart goes along with it. It's been happening so long that you start to agree with all the thoughts that your having. Note it also says at the end
    "My heart screams inside with pride
    Once I cry
    Now I wipe away the tears"

    Meaning once upon a time he cried from these feelings, now he's wiped away his tears and his heart screams out in pride.



    I dont know if that makes any sense, but that's my thought.

    General Commentthis is off their 4 song demo tape it's the first unreleased korn song. It wasn't released because the main dramatic guitar part with screaming sounds too much like Need To. Too bad this song would have sounded great as a studio version.
