"Asleep" as written by and Salvatore P. Erna....
Wait a minute.
Can't you see what this pain has done to me
I'm alive but I'm slippin'
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 told you.
I'm awake swallowing you

Take a second.
Turn your back on me and make believe
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 told you.
I'm awake swallowing you
I'm alive for you.
I'm awake because of you
I'm alive told you.
I'm awake swallowing you

    General Commentthey do a great job live, but SakkWeldeBLS, what the hell? its not the same song, or the acoustic version.

    look at the verse, this is the "anti-awake", the other end of the spectrum. i love the way they did two songs like this to compliment eachother.

    "im alive, and still kicking"
    "im alive, but im slipping"

    its a great song, and a great idea

    General Commentif you have a soul this song will make you cry. I think its about a guy who has been betrayed and hurt and life is slipping away
