about

yOya's first single since the release of their debut album, "Come Alive" portrays a turbulent end to a relationship. Watch the video here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=9RxBQk35b5U

lyrics

some kind of lover
some kind of bug in my mind
chewing up my conscience
spit out the seed and swallowed my pride

I'm trailing blood
I'm trailing blood from my hands
a lit firecracker between my lips
I'm a modern man

at the edge of the wheel
that'll never stop turning
spun away from the middle
I've come alive, come alive

I'll forget this fever
I'll forget crawling back to your palm
to feed off of your meaning
'cause I know I know I know
that it's gone

I'm at the edge of the wheel
that'll never stop turning
spun away from the middle
I've come alive, come alive

your lip's got a quiver
telling me there's something wrong

and my brain just got a shiver
you gotta tell me if there's something wrong

goddamn the youth
and goddamn this good excuse
to curse through my teeth
and lie
and let my tongue tie a noose

I don't need your pity
and I don't need your warning
I don't care if you hear me
I've come alive, come alive

at the edge of the wheel
that'll never stop turning
spun away from the middle
I've come alive, come alive
