Skillet – Not Gonna Die lyrics

[Verse 1]
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
!

[Pre-Chorus]
The last thing I heard was you whispering goodbye,
And then I heard you flatline.

[Chorus]
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!

[Verse 2]
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!

[Pre-Chorus]
The last thing I heard was you whispering goodbye,
And then I heard you flatline.

[Chorus]
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!

[Hook]
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!

[Outro]
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.

    This could be about a man and a woman fighting a sickness like cancer, so that the man doesn't die. There is explanation to this because of various phrases.
    "The last thing I heard was you whispering goodbye, and then I heard you flat line"
    "Don't close your eyes"
    "Not gonna die tonight, we're gonna stand and fight together".
    It isn't just about reality, it's about things that you should cherish before they go away. It's very similar to fighting any sickness or disease. It could include depression, bipolar disorder, suicidal thoughts, and other things that people try to fight. People don't realize that this means so much more than just being a song. It means that we have to fight for people. This means a lot to me because my grandma died of brain cancer in august, and last year. It means more to me than a song could. There may be more meaning to songs than we thought. When you think about the song's meaning, come back and talk to everyone who thinks it has a meaning. Fight or flight (which means just letting it overtake you) is the only option, and many people pick fight. Bye! Don't forget to think about the meaning!
