"Awake" as written by and Salvatore P. Erna....
Wait another minute.
Can't you see what this pain has fucking done to me.
I'm alive and still kickin'.
What you see I can't see and maybe
You'll think before you speak.

I'm alive for you.
I'm awake because of you.
I'm alive I told you.
I'm awake swallowing you

Take another second.
Turn your back on me and make believe that
You're always happy.
It's safe to say you're never alive.
A big part of you has died
And by the way, I hope you're satisfied.

I'm alive for you.
I'm awake because of you.
I'm alive I told you.
I'm awake swallowing you

I'm alive for you.
I'm awake because of you.
I'm alive I told you.
I'm awake

Tearing it back unveiling me.
Taking a step back so I can breathe.
Hear the silence about to break.
Fear resistance when I'm awake.

Tearing it back unveiling me.
Taking a step back so I can breathe.
Hear the silence about to break.
Fear resistance when I'm awake.

I'm alive for you.
I'm awake because of you.
I'm alive I told you.
I'm awake swallowing you

I'm alive for you.
I'm awake because of you.
I'm alive I told you.
I'm awake swallowing you

    General Commentfantastic song.i think this is about the ppl who just use him for their own means.they act like they are mad and when the show is over they turn their backs and go away without caring.as he says:

    Take another second.
    Turn your back on me...
    and make believe that you're always happy.
    It's safe to say you're never alive.
    A big part of you has died.
    And by the way...
    I hope you're satisfied

    rite but on the other hand he sayd he is alive cuz of thses fans.they might use him but they are the only reason he is living for.just to entertain them.hope i got a point straight.

    General CommentA. The song came out before it was used by the Navy, and B. i think the navy just used the song (considering you only har the first, what 15 seconds of it, no words) cuz it sounded kick ass enough to make you wanna storm Afghanistan in a rubber raft
