"I'm Awake Now" as written by George Tutuska, Robbie Takac and John Rzeznik....
I've been where the river ran
I'm drownin' in a sunless sea
Sleep has helped me find my end
You promised me you'd set me free
Don't fall asleep to dream

A banshee's at my window pane
There's an angel at my feet
Don't fall asleep to dream

I'm awake now
(You can't touch me, I won't sleep no more)
I'm awake now

In the corner of my mind
Where he sits and waits for me
There's a wall of confusion building
And the sky begins to bleed on me
Don't fall asleep to dream

I'm looking for a way out now
Peace of mind is all I need
Don't fall asleep to dream

I'm awake now
(You can't touch me, I won't sleep no more)
I'm awake now
(You can't touch me, I won't sleep no more)
I'm awake now
(You can't touch me, I won't sleep no more)
I'm awake now

I'm awake now
I'm awake now
I'm awake now
I'm awake now

    General Commentthis song is awesome. i think it basically means just what it says: don't fall asleep to dream. live in the real world. don't escape to one of your own, because you're only lying to yourself.

    General CommentTo Boo Urns; Johnny Depp WAS in this movie. Not as Glen though, of course, but he had a short cameo as the guy in the parody of the 'This Is Your Brain On Drugs' commercial that Spencer watched before he was sucked (for lack of a better word) into the TV/video game. He was the guy who got hit in the face by Freddy with the frying pan.

    He was credited as Oprah Noodlemantra.
