Glad You're Alive

(TREXEL)

When I first met you, you were a baby

I looked at you and I thought maybe

Maybe you're the one who’ll stay alive

Perhaps you’ll be the one to survive

I’ve been hurt before, I know it’s true

But perhaps it will be different with you

Look at you so weak and stupid

And we both know that the truth is

Without me you’d be dead already

Remember the trial you were like “Trexel help me”

Bravely I stood and defended your honour

If it were just you and Hartro, you'd be a goner

I’ve proved my worth ten times over

A talent as rare as a forty-leaf clover

It’s about time you admitted my value

And say it out loud, “Trexel Thank you!”

You should really thank me for my kindness and

My protection

Your part of a very small selection

Of people with whom I’ve really tried

I’d be sorry if you died, I'm glad you're alive

(TREXEL + CHORUS)

You are, still alive

You are, still alive

You are, still alive

You are, still alive

(DAVID)

I first met you, I was a baby

I looked at you and I thought maybe

Maybe he’ll help me in this life

Protect from dangers trouble and strife

I immediately discovered this wasn’t the case

You're the most dangerous member of the human race

An encyclopaedia of drunken lies

The worst example of ‘one of the guys’

Without you things would be so much better

I remember the trial; it was like having a fetter

You wandered round yelling things almost at random

And the trail only happened because of your tantrum!

You’ve proved your selfishness ten times over

An ego as large as a giant supernova

It’s about time you admitted your folies

and say it out loud “David, I'm sorry!”

(TREXEL)

You should really thank me for my kindness and

My protection

(DAVID: You weren't even listening were you? TREXEL: Yeah!)

You’re one of the few with whom I've had a connection

(DAVID: Not even slightly)

I’d be sorry if you died, I'm glad you're alive

(TREXEL + CHORUS)

You are, still alive

You are, still alive

You are, still alive

You are, still alive

DAVID (Background During Final Chorus):

So, I’m just gonna, So, I’m just gonna, I'm just gonna go, I’m just gonna’ go

‘cause you're not even listening to me, you not, you never

listen to me, you’re not listening now, you never will, I, I

might as well leave, just, just, I’m going, right, bye, bye forever,

maybe, tomorrow probably, but bye, right now, just, I’m off!

(TREXEL)
