Assemblage 23 – Alive lyrics

Through the iridescent rain
In this heavy atmosphere
Nothing makes a sound
But the beating of my heart

Broken down and torn to shreds
On the verge of madness
Here comes the old familiar pain
Like a long lost friend’s return

I never felt so
I never felt so

Waves of doubt wash over me
A sighing ocean of black
Deep and steady, dark and wide
Underneath indifferent stars

I’ve been waiting for so long
For some kind of answer
But there’s just an empty, distant sound
Calling like a mother’s voice

I never felt so
I never felt so

Every moment is contained
An event within itself
A perfect little world
Hidden by a jealous sun

For an eternity or more
It was the hurt that brought me back
Like the glowing fires of home
Beckoning through winter air

I never felt so
I never felt so
