ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Make it Alive" is a song about the plight of a patsy who actually outsmarts the establishment by being bullet-proof on the outside and soft on the inside. Written, performed, produced, and recorded by T.M.Smith. Cover art photo and design by Matt Homer: www.matthomer.com. For those interested here are the lyrics:

It was raining on that
cold grey night
hiding from the
red and blue lights
they thought they had me
in their sights
that's when they closed in on me

The perfect patsy
for their deadly games
they had it covered
it's always the same
they had my fingerprints
my face and my name
that's when they closed in on me

This is my blessing
this is my curse
plenty of others
got it worse
I never thought i would
ever survive
I never dreamed I would
Make it Alive
Make it Alive

A hopeless puppet
on a million strings
under the thumb of
ten thousand kings
I found myself
lost in my dreams
that's when they closed in on me

The road was lined with
clowns and fools
they weren't exactly
following rules
they had their patsy
or so they thought
so they thought

This is my blessing
this is my curse
plenty of others
got it worse
I never thought I would
ever survive
I never dreamed I would
Make it Alive
Make it Alive
Make it Alive
Make it Alive
