"Dream Awake" as written by Glen Hansard, Colm Macconiomaire, Joseph Doyle, and Robert Bochnik....
There's a point in all your dreaming,
To every time mean has just deserves,
And every time I caught you leaving..

I had to dream awake..

And for every time I came home screaming,
And got sent away, with no warning at all,

I had to dream awake..

There's a calling, a calling, a calling,,
To everyone, who lost something

And who had to dream awake.

There's a fight were not contending,
Where we have to the words get mixed,
And the point is lost
Where we have to dream awake.

So take us under now..
Take us over now..

There's a warning, a warming, a warning,
To everyone, who found something..

    General CommentThis song references the Aztec Book Of The Dead, a philosophy where they believe that this world is all a dream and only when we die do we really wake up. It helps people cope with hard times in their current life, knowing that better times lay ahead.

    "They will begin to meet in their own feathered serpent or winged serpent wheels and become a major force of the light to help the rest of humanity to dance their dream awake".
