General InformationEdit

EA Contessa Captain Maggot by x Nici x

"Dead Is The New Alive" is one of Emilie Autumn's songs from Opheliac, which also acted as a single from the album in DJ CDs and the Liar/Dead is the New Alive EP. A handful of remixes were done of the album by varying artists and the Manipulator Remix was performed live from 2006 to 2011. The song was discussed in length on Autumn's Opheliac Companion with her friend and audio engineer, Inkydust. The song is meant to be a parody on the goth culture and the obsession with death that has become prominent in a number of cultures. To be alive is to contemplate death; the only purpose in life is to die, essentially.

The original version of the song was never performed live, however, the Manipulator Remix by Dope Stars, Inc. was performed at every Opheliac show and was a fan-favorite. The live performance of the song featured a fire performance from Captain Maggot, who performed fire hooping, and Contessa, who breathed and swallowed fire.

LyricsEdit

Dead is the new alive
Despair’s the new survival
A pointless point of view
Give in, give in, give in, give in
You play the game
You never win

Dead is the new alive
Life’s only living rival
A casket built for two
Give in, give in, give in, give in
You play the game
You never win

So take me now or take me never
I won’t wait
You’re already late
So say goodbye or say forever
Choose your fate
How else can we survive?
Dead is the new alive

Dead is the new alive
A gothic play revival
The last act of the show
Give in, give in, give in, give in
You play the game
You never win

So take me now or take me never
I won’t wait
You’re already late
So say goodbye or say forever
Choose your fate
How else can we survive?
Dead is the new alive

What is a day without a blessed night?
And what is peace without a blessed fight?
What is a day without a blessed night?
And what is peace without a blessed, blessed, blessed fight?
A quick taste of the poison, a quick twist of the knife
When the obsession with death
The obsession with death becomes a way of life
A quick taste of the poison, a quick twist of the knife
When the obsession with death
The obsession with death becomes a way of life

Alive, alive alive
Oh oh oh oh oh
Alive, alive, alive
Oh oh oh oh oh
Alive, alive, alive
Oh oh oh oh oh
Alive, alive, alive
Oh oh oh oh oh
Dead is the new alive
Alive, alive alive
Dead is the new alive
Alive, alive alive
Alive
Dead is the new alive
Alive
Dead is the new alive
Dead is the new alive
Dead is the new alive
Dead is the new alive
Dead is the new alive
Dead is the new alive
Dead is the new alive
Dead is the new alive
(Dead is the new alive)
