lyrics

Alive

It's good to be alive,
You feel it or you don't,
Intense as the light,
Before stars explode;

Good to be alive,
Lie lie la, la la la la-la la-la!

It's good to be alive,
Making waves in space,
Where cultures collide,
And angels fear to tread!

Good to be alive, so you realize,
Amid the horror of the dehumanized;
We're only passing time, that's how and why,
Most energy's drained, just getting by!

It's good to be alive,
What are the chances, right?
To think of all the sperm that,
Never made it to light!

Good to be alive,
Lie lie la, la la la la-la la-la!

It's good to be alive,
In this cosmic dance,
With hearts on fire,
Oh what a blast!


Burn your bridges, way to go!
And what night will catch you all alone?
Give me your hand, oh feeble man,
Without you I can never see what I am!
