Alive In New Light

from Alive In New Light by IAMX



There’s a power much bigger than hate
Still lost in the urge to annihilate
But I know I will overcome this
You dragged me through the darkest days
By the skin of my teeth you restored my fate
And I raised myself out of the ashes

Now I’m alive in new light

And I was carrying the weight of the universe
The typical brittle perfectionist
Confused by my every decision
One day I was being the hero
The next I was playing the coward
Burnt out by my overreaction

There were times when I thought that my heart would stop
Running for a bleak horizon
Locked in my obsessions
And now I am the raindrop
I am the tulip
I have learned compassion
