Alive
by Korn

Album: Take A Look In The Mirror (2003)
  • I cannot ever find a way
    To throw these darkened thoughts away
    Need a place to hide
    It's thrown in my face everyday
    Guess that's the price I have to pay
    For what's inside my mind

    Alive!
    Alive!
    Alive!
    Alive!
    Alive!
    Alive!
    Alive!
    Alive!

    I am alive
    I will never run away
    Places inside
    My heart screams inside with pride
    Once I cried
    Now I wipe away the tears
    Once I died
    Now I'm alive

    Alive!
    Alive!
    Alive!
    Alive!
    Alive!
    Alive!
    Alive!
    Alive!

    Little things tempt me everyday
    Contemplating's how I like to play
    Better not cross that line
    What's this in my head I didn't say
    It's something I can't throw away
    What's inside my mind

    I am alive
    I will never run away
    Places inside
    My heart screams inside with pride
    Once I cried
    Now I wipe away the tears
    Once I died
    Now I'm alive

    I bide my time
    I'm intertwined
    I'm falling in this place
    I thought I left behind x2

    I bide my time
    I'm intertwined
    I'm falling in this place
    I thought I left behind
    (Feeling so alive)
    (Feeling so alive)

    Alive!
    Alive!
    Alive!
    Alive!

    I am alive
    I will never run away
    Places inside
    My heart screams inside with pride
    Once I cried
    Now I wipe away the tears
    Once I died
    Now I'm alive Writer/s: SEBASTIAN MOSER, MAXIMILIAN WILLIAMS, JONATHAN ZACHARIAS, MERTEN LINDORF, MARCEL PRESTEL, LAURA OYEWALE

  • Zero from Nowhere, NjNo, Nathan, pretty sure it's Jon saying/growling "Alive", and I think Head does the background vocals during the chorus.
  • Nathan Ritz from Marengo , InJoey, its not just a weird noise, hes saying alive, and no its the lead guitarist
  • Joey from Cincinnati, Ohis it Jon that is making that weird noise before the chorus in this song??
  • Billy Ross from Hagerstown, MdI love the slap bass intro in this song
  • Kassandra from Long Island A.k.a Wrong Island, Nyi love this song... but i love every korn song ive been a korn fan since i was like 5 (im a korn kid lol) lol ive been a fan for 10 years oh and kurt.... i think you might be right
  • Jimmy from Modesto, CaReally good song by one of my favorite band, Korn.
  • Kurt from Unity, MeNot certain on this but i think that Jon is suggesting that he survived his troubled childhood and, even though hes traumatized he will live.
