Godsmack - I Stand Alone




Originally released on the Scorpion King soundtrack in 2002, "I Stand Alone" was later released on Godsmack's Faceless album in 2003. Dwayne Johnson (The Rock), who starred in the movie, is in the video.


Godsmack frontman Sully Erna told Entertainment Weekly how the film opportunity came along, saying, "I had a little bit of time before we started writing the new album. And it turned out that The Scorpion King director Chuck Russell was a fan of Godsmack and wanted to use our song 'Voodoo' in the movie. Because the song was a little dated, he wanted me to redo it, and I wasn't really up for that. Instead I submitted some new music I had written 'I Stand Alone.' Once we were working together, he leaned on me a little bit to help him find some of the best up-and-coming bands."



Lyrics


I've told you this once before, you can't control me


If you try to take me down, you're gonna break


I feel your every nothing that you're doing for me


I'm thinking you ought to make your own way



I stand alone, inside


I stand alone



You're always hiding behind your so-called goddess


So, what? You don't think that we can see your face?


Resurrected back before the final falling


I'll never rest until I can make my own way


I'm not afraid of fading



I stand alone


Feeling your sting down inside me, I'm not dying for it


I stand alone


Everything that I believe is fading


I stand alone, inside


I stand alone



And now, it's my time (Now it's my time)


It's my time to dream (It's my time to dream)


Dream of the skies (Dream of the skies)


Make me believe that this place isn't plagued by the poison in me


Help me decide if my fire will burn out before you can breathe


Breathe into me



I stand alone inside


I stand alone


I stand alone


Feeling your sting down inside me, I'm not dying for it


I stand alone


Everything that I believe is fading


I stand alone inside


I stand alone inside


I stand alone inside


I stand alone inside
