"This Is How We Live Forever" (aka "The HELL YEAH Anthem") Lyrics by Kristina Autumn Taylor ©2014 Kristina Serpentine Lyrics/sadistsateme.songwriting [BMI/ASCAP] All Rights Reserved

(Notes From The Singer-Songwriter: I originally started out writing this song with the idea of finding a way to channel all that Bohemian energy and creative anger/sadness/happiness/fear/etc., into a song that really would wake people up, and maybe change some lives/minds along the way. Though it took me like 5 years writing and re-writing the lyrics, I really feel this is like the best version I've ever written. It's something I'm proud as shit to have written, and hopefully something that most people can truly relate to. And since having come home to where I felt like this was where I belonged all this time, but didn't know it, I'm finally able to finish this song, and hopefully, use it for my next album or another future album, when the time is right, that is. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the lyrics as much as I've enjoyed writing it. Namaste, Kristina.)

All the roads we've traveled, burnt like a moth to a flame
All the broken hearts and scars we've endured, all the burdens of being blamed
They said I'd never amount to anything
They said I'd never make it past 19
But here I am, farther away from the pain of my darkness
And here you are, holding my hand, brothers and sisters united
We proved them all wrong; we proved our low self-esteem wrong
And somehow, the resiliency and our emotional endurance kept us alive all along
Bohemia will never die, for as long we live
Angels we hold grudges to, demons we're able to finally forgive
Balance everything we've done and that's how we move on from everything we hate
We're finally free.... we're finally alive... we're finally so far away...

Chorus:
HELL YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is how we live forever
Talk hard, rock harder until we all fade away
Long after we're gone, they'll remember our legacies forever
Walk tall, stand stronger until the world slips away
HELL YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is how we live forever
Stay true; never sell out until all the haters walk away
Long after we’re gone, our compassionate creativity will live forever
Believe; never surrender all that we are until our dying day
HELL YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THIS IS HOW WE LIVE FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!

All the words we’ve said, all the things we’ve done only to bring us here
All the fights we’ve had, all the friendships we’ve gained and lost only to reveal where we are now through all these years
They said I’d never survive high school, let alone the world so cold
They said I’d never be more than a one-hit wonder and commit suicide all alone
But here I am, farther away from my broken home to prove the world that I’m still alive
And here you are, still dedicated to the music that saved our lives
We proved them all wrong; we did survive all this reality
And somehow, the lyrics we wrote over the years brought us all the long-lost peaceful healing we all needed so badly
Revolution will never die, for as long as we breathe the air
The burning passion of our art makes life living a little easier
All that we are, all that we’ve done, come as you are, leaving behind the scars
We’re finally okay… we’re finally human again… we’re so far away but ever so closer to the immortal stars…

Chorus

All the mistakes we’ve made, all the memories we carry with us
Never once did we ever give up
The lonely depression we’ve overcome just to prove to the world that we’re still indestructible
Let’s celebrate our victory, pulling off the impossible
We never gave in to the mainstream corruption
We’ve found a new way to live, becoming the downfall of all the corporations
WE WILL NEVER DIE, WE WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WE ARE THE SALVATION OF THE BOHEMIAN REVOLUTION!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is how we live…
FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chorus x2

THIS IS HOW WE LIVE FOREVER, IMMORTALIZED!!!
