Lyrics[edit | edit source]

What is this feeling

Of power and drive

I've never known?

I feel alive!

Where does this feeling

Of power derive,

Making me know

Why I'm alive?

Like the night, it's a secret

Sinister, dark, and unknown.

I do not know what I seek

Yet I'll seek it alone!

I have a thirst

That I cannot deprive.

Never have I felt so alive!

There is no battle

I couldn't survive-

Feeling like this-

Feeling alive!

Like the moon, an enigma,

Lost and alone in the night

Damned by some heavenly stigma,

But blazing with light!

It's the feeling of being alive!

Filled with evil, but truly alive!

It's the truth that cannot be denied!

It's the feeling of being Edward Hyde!
