lyrics

I was runnin' before I had shoes
Flirtin' with trouble, I had nothin' to lose
I didn't mean it, but I didn't choose
The time to reconcile...

He brought me to life
Though I still can't cry
He never knew me
But neither did I
And now here's that light
They told me I'd see
And here I stand, horrified,
(I) finally know how to be...
...Alive.

I live that night inside of my head
Colors receding 'cept for green and red
I invited stealth, but harm came instead
It's fire by trial...

He brought me to life
Though I still can't cry
He never knew me
But neither did I
And now here's that light
They told me I'd see
And here I stand, horrified,
(I) finally know how to be...
...Alive...
...Alive...

How can I tell you?
It's like I've thrown out my answers
And now I only have questions.
How can I tell you?
It's like a shock from above,
It's like he kills me with love and kindness.

He brought me to life
Though I still can't cry
He never knew me
But neither did I
And now here's that light
They told me I'd see
And there you are, glorified,
I finally know how to see...

He brought me to life
Though I still can't cry
He never knew me
But neither did I
And now here's that light
They told me I'd see
And there you are, glorified,
I finally know how to see...........

......An eye for an eye...

An eye for an eye.
