Everything that kills me, makes feel alive...

from OneRepublic – Counting Stars Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

You can’t be killed without being alive. So as he dies he realizes that he’s alive even if he did not feel the way before.

Some people, for example those doing extreme sports feel alive in the moment they face death.

The adrenalin rush!
