Set It Off - Life Afraid Lyrics

I, I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired.
And letting all these negative thoughts collide,
Why betray my mind, when I know the control is mine.

Got no time to sit on the sidelines and watch ‘em play,
People around the world, people around the world,
Gotta strike like lightning, and shine like we’re not afraid.
People around the world say,

I’m alive,
I’m breathing today,
I’m alive,
Just dying to make,
A good vibe,
I’m still in the game,
And I won’t live my life afraid, hey!

No, nobody can relieve me of my ghosts,
But I refuse to let ‘em define my soul,
Though they come and go, I’m the one with the guts to stay.

Got no time to sit on the sidelines and watch ‘em play,
People around the world, people around the world,
Gotta strike like lightning, and shine through the pouring rain.
People around the world say…

I’m alive,
I’m breathing today,
I’m alive,
Just dying to make,
A good vibe,
I’m still in the game,
And I won’t live my life afraid, hey!

Hey, Ho
Hey, Ho
Hey, Ho

Sing it back
Sing it back
Sing it back, here we go!

Ladies! Hey, ay, ay
Hey, ay, ay

Fellas! Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh

I’m alive,
I’m breathing today,
I’m alive,
Just dying to make,
A good vibe,
I’m still in the game,
And I won’t live my life afraid

I’m alive,
I’m breathing today,
I’m alive,
Just dying to make,
A good vibe,
I’m still in the game,
And I won’t live my life afraid

I’m alive,
I’m breathing today,
I’m alive,
Just dying to make,
A good vibe,
I’m still in the game,
And I won’t live my life afraid, hey!
