Songfacts®:

  • "Who's in control?" Margarita Monet of the metal band Edge Of Paradise asks on this track. Sometimes in our quest to feel alive, we are thwarted by technology, which is one of the themes here.

    "'Alive' is dealing with us humans being so caught up in the digital world, obsessed with convenience and monetary gain, we have begun to sacrifice our humanity," she said. "We get lost in the enticing virtual reality that we forget what real human interaction feels like. Sometimes I want to break away from bombardment of advertisements, social standards, never-ending race with time and just breathe, and remember what it's like to feel alive! To connect with our fellow humans and the world!"
