I'm alive!


I am Laz'rus, risen from the grave!
Quite alive you find me -
This tomb behind me
Is where I faced my closest shave!
When I struck my head against the street
I was stunned, not stricken -
Our plot doth thicken -
As Jasper flew me off my feet

To the crypt
I awoke in dark beyond belief
And while all above me showed their grief
I was screaming for my very breath
Only moments from death

You have no idea the sudden strength
That you feel within you
The steel and sinew
When death stands smiling at arms-length
I escaped! From Cloisterham I fled
And I did not return here
'Til I could learn here
Just who in hell would wish me dead
But more than that
More than what solution fits the crime
What I've learned is that life is bits of time
And you fight for every tiny speck
When you're held by the neck:

I have read the writing on the wall
And the greatest myst'ry
Is not the hist'ry
Of Jasper, Drood, and one and all!

I have met my Maker and returned!
What advice I'm giving
To all those living
Is just to learn what I have learned:

Life is dear
There can be no vict'ry in defeat
If out-numbered, beat a fast retreat
To the nearest shelter and dig in!
When you live, then you win!

Scratch and claw for every day you're worth!
Make them drag you, screaming
From life, keep dreaming
You'll live forever here on earth
I have seen the writing on the wall
And it's clearly spelled out
For those who've held out
That holding on to life is all

Is it clear?
If you hear my voice, then you're alive
What a bloody marvel we survive
When you think of every risk we face
In our mad human race!

I have read the writing on the wall!
Try to live forever
And give up, never
The fight - you'll need the wherewithal!
Can't you heed


The warning...


The lightning
As I plead


The light of morning...

Inciting you
To read


To read...


The writing on the wall!


The writing on the wall
The writing on the wall!


On the wall!
