"Asleep, I Lie" as written by and William H./hartmann Martin....
I can't stay forever
And you're too insulting to me (darling)
I can't live forever and be who they want me to be and

I
I cannot pretend
I will not surrender these dreams in my head
I
I will not disguise
They cannot cover the stars in my eyes
Asleep I lie

Fall, like I do
Will this be the first time for you?
Walk on me, I walk on you
Stuck on me, stuck on you

I
I cannot pretend
I will not surrender these dreams in my head
I
I will not disguise
They cannot cover the stars in my eyes
Asleep I lie

All the things they're telling me
Make me want to up and leave
But I'm not sure that now's the time
And I'm not sure of anything
But even if I crossed the line
At least I'm being true to life
It's me out with the stars tonight [repeat]

I
I cannot pretend
I will not surrender these dreams in my head
I
I will not disguise
They cannot cover the stars in my eyes
Asleep I lie

    General CommentThe lyrics are pretty self-explanatory, but the song itself is just perfect. Eerie and powerful, and emotional. Best song on the album IMHO. Well, Headstrong's pretty good. I'll call it a tie.
