Alive – The Rebel’s Anthem

When do you feel alive,
When do you feel that drive?
When do you feel that urge,
To make dreams and actions merge?

When you’re running up that hill
As the rest are standing still,
When against the tide you stand,
When you hold a wounded hand,

When you have a path to choose
With everything you have to lose,
When you fight for hopes and dreams
As the world around you schemes,

When you’re consumed by that fire,
When you’re filled with righteous ire,
When you walk with head held high,
When you always question why,

When their lies you disavow,
With victories none to show
And you refuse still to bow,
Think about it, “Am I alive now?”
