"Unalived" is a deeply personal song for me. It draws from a mix of my own experiences and observations of the world around me. The song explores themes of struggle, betrayal, and the feeling of being trapped or manipulated by external forces. It's about the emotional turmoil and isolation that can come from feeling misunderstood or at odds with societal norms.
The imagery in "Unalived," such as being born in a hurricane and choking on falling rain, symbolizes the tumultuous beginnings and overwhelming challenges that many of us face in life. The metaphorical monsters and thunder represent internal or external struggles and fears that we grapple with. But beyond that, the song is about the feeling of betrayal and loss of innocence, as well as the despair that can come from feeling used or exploited for the benefit of others.more
