Tree – Running With The Devil lyrics

Times in my life I felt I was dying
Trials in my life I am still surviving
Like a phoenix rising up from it's
Own flames
I've been resurrected rise in my own name
I must face the facts,
Acknowledge all I've known
Across the tracks and back
Finally I have grown
I must face the truth,
Acknowledge all I've seen
With every fiber of my heart and soul and being
Content of Character
Constant test of will
Pass or fail this test
I will sacrifice
Help me celebrate
This precious life
As the battle rages
I will carry on
True to my convictions
I shall overcome
Content of Character
A constant test of my will

    This song is great! I believe him to be talking about overcoming alcoholism! Sounds as if he's had recently come to the crossroads of either getting and staying sober or continuing to plummet into the continual pit of darkness that is alcoholism and he's choosing to fight for sobriety and is also acknowledging the extensive work he'll have to put forth on a constant basis in order to sustain his sobriety and has come to the point where he's finally willing to try as hard as he can do so. This is real s**t! An honest and soul searching piece of music!
