Alive and Dying Lyrics

Walk with me down to the lake
The water I was born in I
Came alive and from that
First breath I began drowning I

Crawled out to become
The one who stands before you I
I'm not done yet, not done
Got to keep on moving

I can't see all I may become, but I
can't complain, it's alright, I'll find my way

Walk with me, through the woods
The darkness I grew strong in I
Spoke with devils and angels
Met the highest one

Yet I left those woods behind
To search the world for my place
And at times I've wondered
If the effort was a waste

But where do we go
When the whole damn city's on fire?
Run back home from where we came
After all, we're all alive and dying

I want to break the sky
Kill death and tell the truth with a lie
I want to fish for stars
Destroy every piece of impressionist art

So where do we go
When the whole damn city's ablaze?
Run back to the home we left
After all, we're just alive and dying

(There never lived an innocent one
The gun always kills for the silent tongue)

Walk with me, through the streets
Of the city I called home once
Decadence and immorality
Were always tempting me

Through will I fought my way
To the top of the highest building
And there I saw the sky
Open wide, wide open

So where do we go
When the whole damn city's ablaze?
Run back to the home we left
After all, we're just alive and dying
