The singer Isaac Peabody, who goes by the stage name PEABOD, enjoys writing and performing hip-hop songs. He aims to help his listeners, no matter their age, connect and relate to the words he expresses in his music. His songs capture both positivity and nostalgia as he writes and performs. His song “Alive” encompasses the beauty of life through both purposeful lyrics and a catchy tune.

I’ve been waiting for a day like this

The room is spinning no more

Feet are back on the floor I missed

I’ve been changing but I’m optimistic

That some bliss really exists outside

From “Alive” by PEABOD

“Alive” describes the hope and excitement that comes from pursuing our ambitions. There are incredible opportunities outside if only we’re willing to seek those opportunities. This song inspires us to take risks because having that courage can turn our initial fears into incredible memories.

I’ll fall in love with the world again (ooh – ooh)

When I step into the light (ooh – ooh)

I wanna run like a wanted man

What a time to be alive (ooh – ooh)

From “Alive” by PEABOD

PEABOD reflects on how nothing is holding him back. His song reminds listeners of the impact that a grateful attitude can have. Instead of taking the simple moments for granted, we are challenged to embrace the experiences God has provided for us and pursue each day eagerly and with a heart full of gratitude for God’s blessings in our lives.
