about

"Alive" is the story of a nerd who has dreamed his entire life of the heroic deeds he would most certainly perform in the event of the apocalypse. However, when the apocalypse actually happens, he finds that things are not as easy as he would have hoped.

lyrics

I am the lone survivor
The last one of my tribe.
Been hiding out for months now,
Surprised I'm still alive.
Not quite sure how it started,
Or just how fast it spread.
One day I'm livin' the dream,
Next day the dream is dead.

Don't want no target practice,
I just wanna live inside my head.
Just want my grocery store,
Sick and tired of scrounging for bread.

Not sure just what I expected,
Pop culture lied to me.
I thought that I would be ready,
Then came reality.

Don't want no target practice,
I just wanna live inside my head.
Just want my grocery store,
Sick and tired of scrounging for bread.

Just want some human contact
And a chance for mind and body to thrive.
No place for truth and beauty,
Just a constant struggle to survive
I'm alive!

So, if I'm really just dreaming,
Or this is some sort of test
I think I've learned my lesson,
My life's been reassessed.

Don't want no target practice,
I just wanna live inside my head.
Just want my grocery store,
Sick and tired of scrounging for bread.

Just want some human contact
And a chance for mind and body to thrive.
No place for truth and beauty,
Just a constant struggle to survive
I'm alive!
