Skillet – Not Gonna Die lyrics

Death surrounds
My heartbeat’s slowing down
I won’t take this world’s abuse
I won’t give up, I refuse!
This is how it feels when you’re bent and broken
This is how it feels when your dignity’s stolen
When everything you love is leaving
You hold on to what you believe in


The last thing I heard was you whispering goodbye
And then I heard you flatline


No, not gonna die tonight
We've gotta stand and fight forever

(Don’t close your eyes)
No, not gonna die tonight
We've gotta fight for us together
No, we’re not gonna die tonight

Break their hold
Because I won’t be controlled
The can’t keep their chains on me
When the truth has set me free
This is how it feels when you take your life back
This is how it feels when you finally fight back
When life pushes me I push harder
What doesn’t kill me makes me stronger

The last thing I heard is you whispering goodbye
And then I heard you flatline

No, not gonna die tonight
We’ve gotta stand and fight forever
(Don’t close your eyes)
No, not gonna die tonight
We've gotta fight for us together
No, we’re not gonna die tonight

Don’t you give up on me
You’re everything I need

This is how it feels when you take your life back
This is how it feels when you fight back

No, not gonna die tonight
We’ve gotta stand and fight forever
(Don’t close your eyes)
No, not gonna die tonight
We've gotta fight for us together
No, we’re not gonna die tonight
No, we’re not gonna die tonight

Not gonna die
(Not gonna die)
Not gonna die
(Not gonna die)
Not gonna die tonight

    I know they were a christian band, I know things about some people feeling betrayed. Their songs do still hold a meaning, It's the pop and country, as well as gospel music that's all the same. It seems like most things are going mainstream. However they're a symbol to me that love songs can be different, bands can change your life, and that you can move on from your past. I've spent most of my childhood bullied. In fact it's been the reason I've started searching for music that understood my pain and my struggles. For me Skillet is my gateway into feeling better, into being understood. Because of them I've found the music I so desperately needed to here as a young lady. Because I didn't have anyone to teach me about needing anyone or about needing to be different. This group is the band that's saved my life time ant time again and I will always be indebted to them. I'm so grateful that I had them around to listen to. I no longer have to struggle with my weight, suicidal thoughts, depression, bulimia, and my unusual personality. There will always be room for improvement now, I'm finally a healthy person and I've been able to overcome so much on my own with the support of my friends in the music world and a very special friend of mine. I'm not longer struggling with myself.
