  • I'm back from the dead

    Out of the black
    Breaking free of the wasteland
    Out of the mud
    Crawling up through the quicksand
    Leaving the dark, coming into the light
    Don't lay me down, save your last rites

    'Cause I'm still standing above ground

    Back from the dead alive
    Hell couldn't hold me
    Back from the other side
    Up from the dirt I rise
    Save your prayers, don't bless my bones
    Erase my name from my headstone
    Back from the dead alive
    Hell couldn't hold me down

    On the edge of the world getting lost in oblivion
    To the devils who tried to keep me living like a prisoner
    Couldn't chain me down, couldn't cage me in
    So keep your savior, give me back my sins

    'Cause I'm still standing on the ground

    Back from the dead alive
    Hell couldn't hold me
    Back from the other side
    Up from the dirt I rise
    Save your prayers, don't bless my bones
    Erase my name from my headstone
    Back from the dead alive
    Hell couldn't hold me down
    Down

    Back from the dead alive
    Back from the other side
    I'm back

    I'm back from the dead alive
    Hell couldn't hold me
    Back from the other side
    Up from the dirt I rise
    Save your prayers, don't bless my bones
    Erase my name from my headstone
    Back from the dead alive
    Hell couldn't hold me down

    Hell couldn't hold me down
    Hell couldn't hold me down Writer/s: Elizabeth Hale, Scott Christopher Stevens
