We all are looking to survive
You hold the power to be alive
Chords of Truth's official lyric explanation
As I was writing The Power To Be Alive, one of the concepts that kept going through my head was just how everything from an ant, all the way up to a person, to a tree is trying to survive. Everything that we’ve done, everything that we’ve adapted to, everything that we try to do is to survive.
When we die we don’t know what’s going to happen next, but we hope that we survive. That’s the thing, if you don’t, you don’t. Then it doesn’t really matter. But, for those of us that do care about that, that’s what this song is about.
It just, kind of, discusses the fact that we’re all connected, we’re all just moving around doing what we do and that there is a presence out there that seems to be guiding us and we need to just quiet our thoughts and let that guide us.
You know, when you have a question or you have a choice that you’re going to make, that’s going to cause major repercussions or whatever, if you just take a moment and see how it makes you feel, that guidance can help you make better choices and have a life and survive and be alive.
