Awake And Alive Lyrics

I'm at war with the world and they,
Try to pull me into the dark;
I struggle to find my faith,
As I'm slippin' from Your arms;
It's getting harder to stay awake,
And my strength is fading fast;
You breathe into me at last!

I'm awake! I'm alive!
Now I know what I believe inside!
Now! It's my time!
I'll do what I want, 'cause this is my life!
Here! (Right here!)
Right now! (Right now!)
I'll stand my ground, and never back down;
I know what I believe inside,
I'm awake and I'm alive!

I'm at war with the world cause I,
Ain't never gonna sell my soul;
I've already made up my mind,
No matter what, I can't be bought or sold;
When my faith is getting weak,
And I feel like giving in,
You breathe into me again!

I'm awake! I'm alive!
Now I know what I believe inside!
Now! It's my time!
I'll do what I want, 'cause this is my life!
Here! (Right here!)
Right now! (Right now!)
I'll stand my ground, and never back down;
I know what I believe inside,
I'm awake and I'm alive!

Waking up! Waking up!
Waking up! Waking up!
Waking up! Waking up!
Waking up! Waking up!

In the dark,
I can feel you in my sleep,
In your arms I feel you breathe into me;
Forever hold this heart that I will give to You,
Forever I will live for You!

I'm awake! I'm alive!
Now I know what I believe inside!
Now! It's my time!
I'll do what I want, 'cause this is my life!
Here! (Right here!)
Right now! (Right now!)
I'll stand my ground, and never back down;
I know what I believe inside,
I'm awake and I'm alive!

Waking up! Waking up!
Waking up! Waking up!
Waking up! Waking up!
Waking up! Waking up!

I agree with Bin, and it must be very tempting for Skillet to sell their soul for fame & fortune but they know they fight against the greatest evil in the world by being out there defying them with their music and still being popular without satanic power. It is far more serious than most people think it is.

This song is amazing. I was at a Skillet-concert a couple of weeks ago and it was amazing. Some of you say that this is about religion, but it's really not. It's about not being afraid to be yourself.

I believe this is about him finding his faith in God and having it really open his eyes to how amazing it is. he states that it's his life he'll do what he wants, and that sounds to me like he doesn't care what anyone else thinks of him. He's proud of his faith and wants to express it.

I love this song. It taught me to never give up on what I believe in or even give up in general. I know it has something to do with faith in God. It's just obvious . They're just inspiring and they inspire me everyday to do better

@Polarity, you can't say this song is about God without being hypocritical, 'I'll do what I want, 'cause this is my life'. If you believe God has control of everyone than you can't live your own life

Skillet is a christian band so of course this song has some religous aspect, but each person takes a different meaning from the song. You dont have to be religous to search for meaning and realisation

@teofil Thus song is about how we Christians don't have to fill the mold that socity has made cuz we are different. I know this because I heard skillet at heavenfest this year. I'm AWAKE and ALIVE.ru?

While listening to this song, it never even occurred to me that this song had anything to with god. I relate it to myself as a transgender person, and the person I love. Now youve all ruined it for me

It doesn't matter if this song is about God or not...which it is because Skillet is a Christian band. It can be applied to anyone's life - it can be about following your heart, doing what you believe.
