"Wake Me Up" as written by Gregory Scott Bergdorf, Matthew S Lewis, Ben Osmundson, Ali Tabatabaee and Edwin Bjorne Udhus....
I want a wrecking ball
I want to break it all
I want to jump the track
Fade the day to black
It's in the elements
In the elements
Is what they meant
And the world is bent

Give me something to believe in
A drop of hope to raise our fists up high
Blood fills our lungs from screaming
We won't live a lie
won't live a lie
This life is but a dream!

[Chorus]
So wake me up
Cause I must be dreaming
I can't believe what my eyes are seeing
Yeah wake me up
I can't find a meaning
Nothing really matters when
the world is sinking
Down, down. down
When it all falls
Down, down, down
Who will you blame?

I want to be what I'm not
I want to care a lot
I want to stop your fall
I want to take it all
It's never Heaven sent
Never heaven sent
And what they meant
never made a dent
Give me something to believe in
A drop of hope to raise our fists up high
Blood fills our lungs from screaming
We won't live a lie
won't live a lie
This life is but a dream.

[Chorus]

Trust is breached
We're misunderstood
We try to find our way
But we're falling down
Nothing to hold on to
No one there to catch you
And I could never lie to you

I said we're fucking falling down
Nothing to hold to
No one there to catch you
And I know you'd never lie
Give us something to believe in
This life is not a dream!

[Chorus]

    General CommentGod Damn it!
    This song is so powerful. It´s about never giving up and keep fighting for your goals completely alone. It´s about hold on and get yourself together.

    However, when you are trying to reach a really high goal, you will do a series of mistakes. Is part of the whole process. Nobody is going to be there to help you , nobody is going to be there for you thus you must keep strong whatever happens.

    You only live once...This life is not a dream!
    Even though the things are not going in your way, you must keep struggling until the last consequences.

    You are going to make it.
    This shit is going to pass.
    This shit is going to pass...

    ¨So wake me up Cause I must be dreaming
    I can't believe what my eyes are seeing
    Yeah wake me up
    I can't find a meaning¨

    General CommentI agree, but let me add this: The intro? BEST. DRUM. SOLO. EVER. This song is so damn inspiring that whenever I hear it, I just want to do something, anything; which is different from my normal laziness.

    General CommentI think this song is about being depressed,

    Yeah wake me up
    I can't find a meaning
    Nothing really matters when
    the world is sinking
    Down, down, down
