they told me i could be alive
they told me id live 'til i die
well guess what, world
in my soul, my mind,
did i survive?
got on my feet
stand on this sand, this god-gracious land
and in my translucent state, trigger my jesus gland
and i tell myself
dead or alive
i protect my soul, my heart, my mind
my friends, my family, and my kind.
