lyrics

TO FEEL ALIVE

It started with a small
lie to yourself
A lie without which
You couldn't survive
You burried your soul
Deep down in a cave
And walked in the sun
All perky and brave
For you and around you
like dead souls they fell
but i knew the truth
and i misbehaved

Who wouldn't you break
And what wouldn't you fake
Who wouldn't you kill
To feel alive

A lie in the mirror
Each day that's what it takes
To feel alive
To feel alive
Tell yourself you're virtuous
That you mean no harm
Then why did you go
And feed on my faith

Who wouldn't you break
And what wouldn't you fake
Who wouldn't you kill
To feel alive
But you're just a lie

Those victories did they taste that good
Did it quench your thirst like you thought it would
Denial's not that much of a peaceful place
How can you still stand your own face

Who wouldn't you break
And what wouldn't you fake
Who wouldn't you kill
To feel alive
