Survive

[Intro]
I have seen the truth
I've seen it in my dream
I have found my voice, but don't know what to say
For I have lost my way, and no one's here to find me
I loathe my loneliness, I hate the emptiness
 
[Verse]
I'm hanging on a wire
Ablaze and set on fire
Waiting for the crack to come
I snap and let it go
 
[Pre-Chorus]
I fall
Through the darkness
About to lose it all
I fall
Against the odds I played and lost it all
Saw the future, now it's gone
 
[Chorus]
Only the strong will survive
I will try to find the strength inside
Only the strong will survive
I will not give up, as long as I'm alive
I will not give in, as long as I'm alive
Only the strong will survive
 
[Verse]
An eternal road
Where the demons go to die
Runs through this barren land
Where my madness lies
 
[Verse]
Have I now lost my mind?
Am I mute, deaf and blind?
I scream without a sound
I just can't let it out
 
[Pre-Chorus]
I fall
Through the darkness
About to lose it all
I fall
Against the odds I played and lost it all
Saw the future, now it's gone
 
[Chorus]
Only the strong will survive
I will try to find the strength inside
Only the strong will survive
I will not give up, as long as I'm alive
I will not give in, as long as I'm alive
Only the strong will survive
 
[Bridge]
The future's not bright
But it's mine
I won't lie, there's no hope in sight
But I'll survive
 
[Chorus]
I will try to find the strength inside
Only the strong will survive
I will not give up, as long as I'm alive
I will not give in, as long as I'm alive
I will not give up, as long as I'm alive
Only the strong will survive
 
[Outro]
Only the strong will survive

Submitter's comments:

"We spent five or six days solid, trying to come up with the lyrics for this song," notes Jens Johansson. "When we finally settled on that punchline for the chorus, it was a good song about survival and it all just seemed to fit. It fits with the history of the band too, because we managed to survive as long as we have. [...] It was the middle of the summer [2021], there were forest fires everywhere, there was a global pandemic and all kinds of crazy shit going on."
