Alone but AliveAlone but Alive:
Okay I am going to start with the obvious: I love this piece. To me it strikes me as a song akin to something from Voltaire or Breaking Benjamin-Evil Angel and that kind of stuff has always appealed to me. But it's the sense of painful conviction at the end that really sells it for me:
Alone, but alive
Because even after all that you're still ticking and still breathing, I find that admirable. Being able to stand strong after enduring torments unfit for the demons of hell and punishment even the devil would cringe at, but look I'm still here.
Powerful words which I take to greatly, well done on making it through and here's to carrying on.
