I am awake
Once again
How are you
My old friend

I am awake
I am alive
I have survived
My time is here

Birds sing out
Morning's on the rise
Figure it out
One more chance
One more day
To find a way to say
What I forgot yesterday

Am I built to survive?
Fading colors melt the skies
Shifting winds, sand storms of time
I am yours, you are mine
I am love, play my strings
Play my heart, my memories
I am the song of your glory
I am the splitting of the sea
Am I built to survive?
Fading colors melt the skies
Shifting winds, sands of time
I am yours, you are mine

We flow together like OM
Flesh, blood, it animates poem
Eventually we gravitate home
It's been a long time, it was hard on my soul
But I know you've been good though
Still alive, giving thanks what we should do
The pride is a snake that can hook you
Hey young world
I know you've been put through
All the struggle makes it worthwhile
The clouds go away when your soul smiles
The smile rises up from a dungeon
Locked away so long, let the sun in
The radiance runs in
Humanity's veins, be the change, so abundant
I feel the wave coming
We built to survive
Be the chosen among them

Am I built to survive?
Fading colors melt the skies
Shifting winds, sand storms of time
I am yours, you are mine
I am love, play my strings
Play my heart, my memories
I am the song of your glory
I am the splitting of the sea
