Rebellion, by Vivian Hadding, from Songs for the Dragon King

I have been exiled because I dared to follow my dreams
I have been snubbed because I tried to follow my heart
I have gone against the so called norm
I've prayed to see the other side of love, the side that is pure

Soul is my foundation, not the status quo
Light is my guide, not others opinions of my direction
I have willingly branded both my body and my heart
Etched in ink and blood my soul's conviction

You mock me and try to stop me
You think I'm blind to all your self righteous whispers
Your snickers, sneers and fright
You envy me my audacity to follow my heart

But, I am divine light
Spirit pure and free
Right or wrong
I am free to fail or fly

It takes great strength and courage to do as we believe
To go against our meek, accepted conduct
To swim against the tidal wave of social masses

We stand alone true to our vision and our souls
We fight for what we feel in the core of our hearts to be real
We pay a most demanding price
Solitude and loneliness are the echo's of our lives

Feels Like I'm Coming Alive from Songs For The Dragon King, by Vivian Hadding

Feels like I'm coming alive now
Waking up from your disaster

Holding on to all that's good inside
Letting the light shine on

Sweeping away the pain
Letting the sea wash it all away

Hear me angels, hear me whales...
I'm coming home to myself again

Been gone too long and missed my mark
Let your lies cloud my heart

But, I'm coming alive now
Waking up from your disaster

And I'm dancing with the dolphins
And I'm playing to the trees

And my soul is wide open
To the blessings held within

No more sadness, no more tears
You can't touch me now, you can't reach me here

Cause God and all his creatures
Steer me clear

From all your secrets, from all your spite
From all your anger and your destructive plight

And I'm coming alive now
And it feels so right

Cause I'm free this time
And I'm serfing the light

Yes I'm free at last
From your fears and your past

And I'm coming home again
To the joy in my heart
