Lyrics
Please give me a reason
To believe all the lies
Cause my teachers and the media
Are ghouls in disguise
Abusing their authority
To prosthelytize
but nothing they report to me
Could change my mind
I need a vacation
From the way things have been
Because im growing impatient
Yeah its boiling my skin
Had enough manipulation
Can you just let me live
Live my life
I'm not gunna give in if I have to fight
then im willing to give my life
rater die than lay down on my back
got no white flag to throw
is this alamo
please give me a reason to give up on my self
you can tell me that its treasonous to stand and rebel
i wont pledge you my allegiance i'll just bid you farewell
and goodbye
I'm not gunna give in if I have to fight
then im willing to give my life
rater die than lay down on my back
got no white flag to throw
is this alamo
i know that on the surface
it might seem like im just fine
but i cant eat I barely sleep
sometimes i wanna run and hide
feels like im dying in this cage my soul is trapped i feel confined
and i just wish they'd let me out so i can finally live my life
I'm not gunna give in if I have to fight
then im willing to give my life
rater die than lay down on my back
got no white flag to throw

  • This... is basically my song. For so many reasons. And I could say that for a lot of Alec’s songs but this one in particular... this one defines me to the core. Because I am willing to give my own life for a noble cause that seems as though very few others will even be fighting for when it comes. My fight is for the future, of my people and for the people of the world. And I won’t stop until I die.

  • Theory: It all begins when Alec is born in (1994) Then when he was a boy he was bullied but liked to be bullied (Boy in the Bubble) The last year of high school(End of the Summer) when Alec moved out he heard a glass break in the apartment above him and met Annabelle.. (Must of been the wind) Alec missed his sister (If we have each other) Something happened with his family (The Wolf and the Sheep) His sister didn't want to have a happy life (Paper Crown) He learned that his father loved him and never wanted to hurt him (Just like you) He decided to grow up (death of a hero) Went to college (I built a friend) Then met Annabelle again He started taking her to the water fountain And dating? (Water fountain)Then later Found out she liked somebody else who would be (Gabriel) She also liked (Steve) So Tried doing her homework to get her to like him again Unfortunately it wasn't enough. (Annabelle's Homework) then he tried again, (If I killed someone for you) He wants her to love him again(Swim) Later she ended up liking him again. Soon after They graduated she told him she didn't like him, but he didn't want to accept it. (Let me down slowly) He tried to get them back together but couldn't (Math in the rain) He felt betrayed (The knife in my back) Alec moved to LA (Jesus in LA) Finally they broke up (The book of you and I) He didn't want things to end (The worst day of my life) He thought that he would never find another girl like her(Last of her kind) He doesn't remember what it was like to be happy )Oh my God) Alec wasn't feeling himself and he had (demons) The he didn't want to be alive (Gotta be a Reason) He tried to be honest (I'm not a Cynic) He feels trapped in his thoughts (Mind is a Prison) he feels lied to (Alamo) he felt that Karma was coming back for him (Outrunning Karma) The coronavirus hit (Six feet apart )Tell me if you liked it. email me @browncad@chambersk12.org

  • All your songs are really great, but none of my family likes them! :c They have bad taste in music. Like- whenever I tell my mom I'm gonna put on your music in the car she says "no", and she says to put it on in the house. But when I do, SHE GOES UPSTAIRS TO HER ROOM SO SHE DOESN'T HAVE TO LISTEN TO IT! So rude :(
