Listen up, child, there's one thing I've got to make clear
Yeah, I do
You don't see it coming
Hear it coming
Acting like you know nothing
About that strange rumor going on around here

Take me back to the land of the living
Take me down where the sun do shine
Take me back, things be different
You get it, got it, ooooh, you better get it now

Chorus:
Stay alive, let your soul rise up from the bottom
Stay alive, don't let it take you down for the very last time
Stay alive, it don't do you no good looking up from the bottom
Stay alive, don't let it take you down for the very last time

You talk about lies and pain
It don't do you no good with your face in the cocaine

Love, hate, watch that mother
She'll bring you down like no other I've seen
If you know what I mean

Take me back, got to face that demon
Take me down, don't play it's fool
Take me back, things be different
You get it, got it, ooooh, you better get it now

Chorus

No, I ain't seen nothin'
No, I ain't seen nothin'
No, I ain't seen nothin' like you before

Repeat chorus
