"I'm Alive" lyrics

I'm Alive

Just sit
And wait
Don't move
Just hesitate
You can hope
And pray
You can moan
Maybe things will change

You feel your soul
Get hollowed out
While the world
You just live

She walks
She runs
She fights
Almost as one
And finds
Her voice
She'll march
She has no choice

She's crushed
By thoughts
At night
Of men
Who want
Her rights
And usually win

But she's alive
Oh, she's alive

She's alive
Oh, she's alive

He screams
He shouts
The heads
On the TV bow
They take
The bait
They mirror
Waves of hate

They break down walls
To free their sins
And then their hearts
Come caving in

Oh, I watch
I think
I dance
And sometimes I drink
I sing
My songs
I'll hope
Someone sings along

If I should break
My silent streak
Will knives
Come out
To cut my cheek?

Oh, I'm alive
Yes, I'm alive
But I'm alive
Oh, I'm alive

I'm alive
Oh, I'm alive
Yes, I'm alive
Yes, I'm alive

I care
A lot
I know
The things I'm not
It's alright
It's okay
And it's not
Maybe things will change
