And all this time you thought this was only an anthem for extreme sports?!?! P.O.D. came out with this gem back in 2001 and the video was released on that fateful Tuesday in September of 2001. Not only is the song uplifting, but the lyrics are inspiring. The group’s name, “P.O.D.” stands for ‘Payable Upon Death’.
The meaning becomes clearer if you read 1st John 4:8 and then substitute that for the word, “love”.
“And now that I know You, I could never turn my back away.” I hear you, fellas. I hear you loud and clear.
Alive – P.O.D. (from the album, “Satellite”)
Everyday is a new day
I’m thankful for every breath I take
I won’t take it for granted
So I learn from my mistakes
It’s beyond my control
Sometimes it’s best to let go
Whatever happens in this lifetime
So I trust in love (So I trust in love)
You have given me peace of mind
